Breakin' dishes, killin' time

My work focuses on issues of identity and femininity, while questioning the stereotypes of women and the need for societal standards of beauty, sexuality, and domesticity. Each image provides a basis for dialog surrounding stereotypes for attraction and glamour, and the concepts of “women’s work”. I approach these ideas not to offer an excuse or an answer for these conventionalized behaviors, but rather as an investigation into the complexities of the female gender and it’s utilization in our culture.
