GENERAL STATEMENT

GENERAL STATEMENT

I am obsessed with what it is to be female, attractive and performative in today's world. Modern female icons like Beauty Pageant Queens and Barbie dolls fascinate me, and I am drawn to their indoctrinating power almost against my will as I struggle to simultaneously resist and conform to these standards of beauty. My paintings pit authenticity against conformity; complicity against rebellion; theatricality against truth; beauty and distortion.These colorist, expressionist paintings reflect the on going love/hate relationship between women, societal expectations, and self-esteem.
