Take Back Your Body

 

I use the language of sculpture, textiles, and digital photography to reflect on the social constructs surrounding the body. 

 

The Watercolors and Wearables embrace uncertainty as a positive experience by removing fear of failure and shifting ownership of art from product to process.

In the Red Corset of Constraint digital prints, the female nude in art is interlaced with a red corset from the 20th century. The images present the female body as a desirable possession, while the Narcissus digital prints hint at the dark side of beauty when it is driven by social politics.
