My pieces are primarily made from old wedding dresses. The point is to reconfigure them into masks and other costumes that women wear to alert women to the “games” we play with our identity and the illusions that are perpetuated by the princess mythology exemplified by the wedding gown attire.
The wedding gown objects are then photographed in action on various models that remain purposely un-retouched to reinforce the real woman versus the role.
From April 29 – May 30, 2014: three of my works will be in the Hoyt Regional Juried Competition in New Castle, PA. There is a Public Reception- May 4, from 2-4pm.
Juror: Dr. Louis Zona
