Jen Lightfoot, Sweet Darkness

Part horror film, part pinup fantasy, Jen Lightfoot’s drawings strive to bring together the grotesque and the erotic in a nightmarish embrace. In ‘Sweet Darkness’ she uses a variety of media to explore the allure of the female body with ambiguous spaces of horror, so that the resulting confusion might then allow viewers to question their sexual attractions and to briefly escape the repercussions that threaten our sexual fantasies. She experiments with the tension between fine line and random ink splatters to think about how the media she employs, along with the subject matter, can also become erotic or grotesque.
