Atleigh Homma’s work deals with issues of femininity and technology. Her process often starts by creating a very detailed and traditionally rendered painting, and finishes by uploading a vlog-style YouTube video. She pairs the mystical artist character with the stereotypical feminine beauty blogger to compare the two as being similar in function. In this comparison she emphasizes that feminine interests and hobbies are often shown as frivolous or unintelligent. By elevating vlogging to “high art”, Homma exposes this sexist favoritism and reveals the intellectual complexities behind feminine cultures. Her work is often humorous and detailed, exploring a wide range of topics within vlogging, art, and conceptual art theory.
