Broken - The Woman Underneath
Broken - The Woman Underneath debuted at the prestigious Salmagundi Art Club, NYC in January 2020.
This mixed media print series The Woman Underneath takes a hyper-realistic approach to explore women's true identity underneath layers of synthetic textures: Cracked and finally Broken through.
Because of self- or societal-imposed expectations to be "good," "pretty," or "successful," and "having it all;" I cannot recall when we actually see women, including myself, as simply who we are, without the many layers of artifice.
To represent this concept, I digitally manipulated real life textures into "skins," which I then blended with my hand-drawn illustration of the subject. Despite the hard shell look, and sometimes porous surface, each texture was chosen to accent the woman’s emotional state. Sometimes they blended perfectly, other times they looked just like an ill-fitted body armor that locks us in.
Broken is the second work in the two work series, the first is Cracked.
