This work is from a series entitled “Art History Blonded”. The concept has to do with gender roles and stereotyping gender roles of the female in the context of magazines and television which reveal the primary concerns of women regards to
appearance, romance and household activities. This has been exemplified even throughout art history. As an artist projecting myself through these images, I choose to project the contemporary female back through the history of art. My intention is not to change the roles but instead to portray how females and males exhibit a full range of human emotions, aspirations, roles and behaviors. Serious but fun.
