Artist replaces male leads in classic Western films with women and it’s awesome

Controversial gender division depicted in classic Western films inspired painter Felice House to create “Re-Western“.

The series is a collection of paintings depicting her favorite Western film characters as females. From James Dean, and John Wayne, to Clint Eastwood, House’s subjects can be seen with shotguns, on horseback, and in a variety of settings we normally link to men. House says, “The western movie tradition is so established; so accepted, so mythologized that it spans the globe. I love the genre, and at the same time when I sit down to watch a Western movie, I start to feel angry. For the most part, the roles in Westerns are totally inaccessible to me.” Check out some of work below and find more of her work on her website and Instagram.
