Mary-Ann Stuart is a Fine Artist focusing on the cultural representation of women and the female nude, as well as recreating aspects of the 14th-16th century female nudes through a 21st-century feminist gaze.




"This piece is a response to my experience with the pill, menstrual cycles and PMS. I've struggled with PMS and severe menstrual cramps since my cycle started and have been on several medications to curb the pain. Eventually, I started using the pill to regulate my cycle and 2 doses of Mefenamic Acid three times a day during my menstruation. Although this made my life easier dealing with cramps, I feel angry at my body every time so think of the fact that I have to do this and resent being born a woman. Although the medication stopped me having cramps, I still suffer from PMS, which adds to the frustrations of how my body functions and affects both my mental and physical health. I get angry with my body and frustrated with the half of the population who don’t have to deal with anything like this."
