Lisa Rytterlund (SE)

Lisa Rytterlund is an artist from Stockholm, Sweden. Her work shows a clear influence from illustration and urban art. The themes the artist evokes are related to women’s issues and sexualization. These themes are explored along with the appropriation of religious iconography in an almost kitsch manner, displaying the absurdity of all these issues.
Rytterlund also appropriates work by famous artists, in this case, replacing the iconic picture of  the mythical Medusa with an image of a phallic-haired girl, mocking the position of women in society. This may be viewed as a form of empowerment and sexual liberty, stressing the fact that women can also think about sex and not be worried about societal rules.
