Insidious Charms: Everyday Tortures SOLD

Throughout history, women have put their bodies, and thusly, their psyches through torturous measures trying to live up to the elusive thing that is beauty. We have constricted our breathing and injected ourselves with poison. We have teetered precariously, balancing on miniscule pedestals and we have crafted our flesh into acceptable contours. But we have not been forced into doing so. We have consensually subjected ourselves to these ridiculous and dangerous tribulations.Through a combination of technical processes, I am able to merge representations of the accepted and established notions of what is beautiful with those of my manufactured grotesque. In this manner, I hope to give way to a different definition of beauty, one of engaging oddity and lush ambiguity. Mordancage is an alternative process that when applied allows the artist to lift and manipulate the blacks in a black and white silver gelatin print.
