High Gloss

High Gloss is an artist magazine created to all attention to the ways in which commercial magazines influence their viewers' desires, perceptions, and identities. 

The first edition of High Gloss, the Sugar Rush issue, focuses on objectification of the body as food - addressing the pressure on women to appear edible, consumable, and palatable - to cater

to a male audience. Products are often marketed (to people of all genders) with highly sexualized imagery. In particular, food products are frequently very suggestive. Personal care products marketed to women are commonly associated with indulgent foods, especially desserts. This connection between a literal form of consumption and the objectification of the female body is made for profit, at the expense of the viewer.
