About Aileen McEwen

I am interested in cultural definitions of beauty, taste and value, focusing on the play between individuality and the wider regulative forces of society. My work engages with illusion and desire as it relates to domestic interiors as a symbol of culturally defined, aspirational living. The work takes the form of paintings, depicting interior spaces that appear staged or false, that function as totems of aspiration and prescribed cultural ideals.
