Elsa Rouy is an artist from Sittingbourne, Kent who now lives and works in London. Currently completing her BA Hons in Painting at Camberwell College of the arts. She creates artwork that takes a female gaze on sex, its anxiety and pleasure: focusing on snapshot intimate moments that become sexual between the main subject and their surroundings. Her work focuses on bodily fluids such as semen, milk, urine, sweat and saliva and their wetness, using imagery of these to focus on their involvement during sex. She explores her own experience of having a female body as well as the artists’ personal anxieties around reproduction. Elsa strives to find the internal and external balance of power between femininity and masculinity within her artwork. Elsa’s main aim is to include the viewer as a voyeuristic counterpart within an erotic scene that feels personal rather than pornographic. Combining comfort and excitement with repulsion and uneasiness.
