A brilliant response to one of Trump’s more odious soundbites, ‘Pussy Grabs Back’ celebrates female strength and sexuality in the face of patriarchal BS. A topless woman rides a hissing black cat, her body printed with tattoos, her finger firing off rounds of bullets. Amelia finishes the esoteric print with Basquiat-esque doodles: fragments of text, simple sketches, and abstract shapes all combine for a powerfully iconic work of contemporary art.

Marcelina Amelia is a contemporary artist, whose tactile work blends print, painting and drawing. Taking inspiration from religious iconography, dreams, and sexuality, her practice plays with the border between lust and innocence, to create a darkly beautiful aesthetic.
