Reviews of Megan’s work:
“Seeking response from an unknown audience is the strength of this piece (She Never Shed a Tear Nor Voiced a Single Complaint), while highlighting the media coverage on gender issues. Her methodology of amplifying the headlines and providing a ground for discussion and engagement correlates with her intention of producing a socially conscious piece.” - Fatos Ustek
"This project adheres to an important and considered tradition of female artists subverting the norms of representation. In particular Grooming Fixations collapses the distinction between images of women as either beautiful or abject." - Royal Academy curator Emma Enderby *
