color photocopy collage
The color photocopy collages that I have created for the past eight years use images from women’s magazines from the 1940’s through the 1970’s, pin-ups and medical illustrations and photographs. The collages examine the role of women both past and present and how girls are socialized in our society. The issues explored range from society’s focus on women as helpers, nurturers and other sub-servient roles to the cultural pre-occupation with beauty.
