Porcelain #1-4, 2017, pigment print, 30x54”
The series Porcelain was inspired by classical sculpture, and how figures were rendered with idealized and perfected proportions. This polished aesthetic is mirrored in representations of the female body in the media today, resulting in many societal pressures for women. With the use of photography and imaging technologies, this seamless aesthetic is utilized alongside the creation of fragmented and broken individuals as a way to confront these ideologies. Juxtaposing perfection with brokenness, I aim to create an unsettling feeling in the viewer through photography’s ability to create a realistic yet very unrealistic reality.
