Sobre mí

I have been making feminist art since I was a teenager. In many ways, it came relatively easily: I am a fourth-generation feminist. My art making is an exploration of the roles of women, from weddings, to pregnancies and motherhood. I explore the rituals surrounding the female experience, sometimes making sense of them for myself, other times poking at them with humor, and irreverence. I realize the privilege it is to see the world from this vantage, and I'm grateful for it every day. As my aunt once said to me, "the feminist viewpoint can sometimes be painful, but once you know, you can never go back."

de Su exhibición:

Women of the developed world appear to have more time and money than ever, yet little has changed in terms of their basic status, societal obligations and privileges. They are culturally and economically coerced to conform to a teen-targeted youth culture that treats them like merchandise with a shelf-life. "Ovulation and Pregnancy" investigates the commodities that women become in the course of their lives. In the series Maybe Mom Ovulation Test, a 28-day cycle of fertility, monitored by a saliva testing kit, is recorded in paintings. The intention is to depict the "time stamped, freshness tested" nature of female fertility. In the Pregnancy Test series, carefully drawn renderings of different brands of pregnancy tests - EPT, Voyager, Pregnancy 1 and Orbiter - reposition these tests as architectural objects in empty spaces.
