Opening Reception: Oct 10th, 5pm – 8pm
Women are beautiful, powerful, and determined. Women birth art, social change, and invention. It is in this arduous process that women know the pain and contractions that occur with standing for their beliefs and they know ultimately that it will come to pass because the force of labor is too great to resist. Through the ages, women have been demeaned, maligned, and controlled yet the spirit of resoluteness that is at the heart of a woman for survival can not be quieted. In FASHION ICONS, I wanted to express a woman’s power that is understated through over-saturation. I wanted to represent icons of the church that gave hope in times of oppression from politics and religion. I wanted to show true ethnicity and costume where it has been homogenized, I wanted to retell their stories because these women are legends that supersede the eras from which they came.
