Spider’s Web, Serving Tray series (2020)
mixed media collage, acrylic on metal tray;
15 x 10 in.
The Covid 19 “Stay at Home” order has caused an exaggerated reversal of roles for some women who find themselves now emotional and physical captives of the very relationships that should protect them. This work is from a series created to illustrate the isolation, secrets, and depression that some women may be feeling now, stuck in their own homes in unbalanced relationships with their partners. They are constructed on traditional hostess’ “serving trays”.
