FBVG is a visual artist based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Her main project is Faces of Rape, which she has been working on since 2009. The idea was to paint women who had been raped, and had come out in the media with their story. For having experienced rape herself, and knowing how difficult it is to talk about, she admired these women who wrote a book about their experience, or told about it in interviews in different media. She wanted to honour them by painting them, and while doing so, making the subject more discussable. At first she made small paintings, since 2013 bigger ones, and called this series Faces of Rape. (FBVG tried to contact all these women to get their permission to exhibit their painting. She couldn't reach everyone. If you are in this series and you don't want to be there, let her know at email@example.com. If you do want to be in this series, let her know as well.)
Since 2018 FBVG started another project: FeMale Image. It's about the image of women, and men, and how they relate to each other. And how this image reflects the ideas we have about women, and men. When our ideas change, the image will change, and vice versa. FBVG wants to show these crossovers.
