Sally Nixon Illustrates What Girls Do When No One Is Watching

Women live in a world in which their appearance is constantly evaluated. Unless they are utterly alone, they rarely have the privilege of not having their physical presentation judged. In Sally Nixon’s illustrations, women don’t know that we can see them. They’re not posing, smiling, or doing anything all that interesting, and this is what makes Nixon’s works fascinating. ‘The women I draw come from my imagination for the most part, however, each of them, in one way or another, is a reflection of my personality. They don’t have perfect bodies or perfect habits and that makes them relatable. The scenes I create around them are everyday places: a bathroom, a restaurant, a messy bedroom. However my goal with each drawing is to elevate the seemingly mundane to something special and worthy of being viewed’.
