Smoke and Ember

I have been meaning to upload more images of artwork that came out of the Ireland residency and this took a while!

Painting, cutting and arranging these pieces took up most of the time but i also wanted it to be accompanied by the correct artist statement to go with it.

SO here goes-

Through cutting, transforming and installation, I will re-imagine physical two dimensional entities to make sense of female mythologies and the ways in which these ideologies frame identities of our current society. Smoke and Ember is a reflection of my journey to break down power constructs that have continuously ostracized the very things that I identify with: otherness, and my femininity. Through engaging social commentary, my hope is to reclaim and dismantle stereotypes surrounding the stories of our foremothers through the reworking of how we see them-lives of the oppressed that are silenced and worshiped in the same breath.
