Artist of the Month (December): Rochelle Asquith






Artist Statement


My work celebrates and explores femininity and queerness in all its forms. Often my work involves portraits of queer icons (like the below drawing of Claude Cahun - a genderqueer rebel who literally led a rebellion against the Nazis), and my work attempts to fight the feeling of disillusionment many minoritised people feel in the current climate. Like many women, queer, and working class people, I often feel exhausted with the weight of everything, and I hope my work is a safe-space for people like me, who feel just as exhausted.





Artist Biography


I am a 23-year-old artist from West Yorkshire, UK. My work has appeared both online and in print, and has been included in a few exhibitions, too. My work is primarily quite Gothic and surreal, with a few expressionist elements thrown in for good measure.
