This work forms part of the triptych Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Rachel Maclean, commissioned by Edinburgh Printmakers as part of the New Print Generation exhibition (2012).
"‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ (2012) is a digital print triptych exploring visions of glamour and the grotesque that draws on a diversity of imagery, merging the disease-ridden poor and the gluttonous aristocracy of 18th-century caricature with the shamelessly plastic body of Katie Price. Emaciated skeletal frames and outlandishly over-weight bodies are seen piled one on top of the other. They eat, crap, grope and enjoy cocktails through penis straws, serving up their balloon breasts, moulded plastic bums and balding platinum curls for the hungry, desirous viewer in an aggressive display of sexual availability."
