Portfolio > Anonymous was a Woman

Women have no
beginning
only continual
flows.

Though rivers flow
women are not
rivers.

Women are not
roses
they are not oceans
or stars.

i would like to tell
her this but
i think she
already knows.

Statement:

This is an ongoing (ethically ambiguous) project incorporating, pilfered, historical black and white photographs, text, and banal (palette specific) captures taken with my iPhone. The words are a tether for the images; separated by method, time and hand.
The final result is meant to be a suggestive story telling of juxtapositions informing my position as a woman who creates art and as an inquiry to my position as a woman simply existing in the world.
