ANONYMOUS IS A WOMAN
ANONYMOUS IS A WOMAN is multi-material body of work which intends to question stereotypes and expectations around women and their bodies, including assumptions that women are weak, delicate and uncertain. I create figures that wear those qualities as armor, and as defiance to their restraint. Paper carapaces resemble boundaries left behind, with writhing forms pressing, fleeting, dancing, and reaching beyond frames of time. The materiality and malleability of paper allows me to make figural forms that are expressive on their own terms, moving away from imagery that perpetuates objectification of the female body. This work is about power, presence and absence, resilience, and the refusal to be silenced.
