Audrey Hansa’s “Bad Girls” Will Blow You Away

by Madelyn Sundquist

Audrey Hansa is here with her “Bad Girls,” a refreshing set of paintings and prints that put to paper actions that are seen as negative when done by a female-identifying person. Drawn from images like those on old matchboxes and vintage ads, Audrey creates her own squad of transgressive women who “are fully aware of what they are doing or have done, and they brandish it.”

From smoking to heartbreaking to shredding on a guitar, the portrait series hits home with its concepts and the bold, blunt lines and colors that Audrey utilizes to present these “Bad Girls.”
