Laura Suryani Thedja (*1993, Germany; UdK, Berlin; University of Arts, London) pulls from the aesthetics of social media to structure her paintings: an exaggeratedly voluptuous woman poses before a simple background. Love Me Like Adam (2020) combines the traditional features of idealized feminine bodies with monstrous abstraction, implying a world in which women are able to reclaim their bodies from the gluttonous male gaze.
