Becky Costello (she/her) is a contemporary artist completing her BA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in London. Raised in Romford; Costello, whom is of Irish decent, is now based in Brixton. She continually finds herself at the center of her artwork, using her body as a site for exploration of themes such as: identity, femininity, sexuality, advertising and commodification. Whilst intrigued in the personal archiving of self, she is also interested in presenting relatable images depicting experiences of girlhood and womanhood. Costello hopes that her body can act as an interchangeable place marker in her work for other women to look at and envisage themselves. Inspired by great female artists such as Yayoi Kusama, Adrien Piper, and Sanja Iveković, Costello repeatedly uses self-portraiture to create moments of intimacy to relate to, laugh at, and to question. She continually challenges and explores ‘the gaze’ through her work, probing at the concept of the male gaze and the new potential of the female gaze.Beyond her studies Costello hopes to work within art, culture and fashion continuing to explore, research, support and specialise in womxn in the arts.
