Frimpong’s drawing has some of Henry Darger’s combination of delicate colouring belying a disturbing, sexually suggestive content, minus Darger’s outsider disregard for the viewer’s sensibility. Frimpong seems determined to rattle the cage, peppering her drawings with images of dismembered bodies, sexual depravity and grotesque tortures. In some senses, Frimpong’s approach to art has the self-reflexive qualities of an actor playing a part; in .The Accidental Birth of Nicola – I Should of been Born a Boy, the displacement of the title is enacted in fantasies of male beauty and sexual prowess. As in a diary, so in the mind: nothing is held back.
