Carolina Mizrahi was born in Rio de Janeiro, and after graduating with a BA in Fashion Photography and Styling from the London College of Fashion, she has cultivated an illustrious career in the UK. Her background in fashion design and advertising has firmly established a specific inventiveness of vividly composed fine art photography. Her experience within different art industries has developed a visual rhetoric that addresses gender stereotypes and the representation of women in advertising and contemporary beauty rituals. In the same vein as Warhol, Mizrahi situates her photography on the superficial precipice of advertisement, drawing upon inspiration from a distorted reality that’s frozen in surrealism.
For The Public House of Art, Mizrahi has created a series of supernatural portraits and documentary photographs of surreal devices with cosmetic remedies. Her signature use of colour is not merely skin deep, but a meditated scheme that answers back to the absurd question, is there a safe word in the unrelenting quest to obtain ultimate beauty? As a satirical quick fix, the artist also documents mechanical oddities that dispense physical parts like breasts and coloured eyes. Mizrahi labours in the editing process to evoke realistic textures to create a virtual, hyper-femininised world that subverts the voyeuristic gaze with satire and shatters gender conformities.
