Portraits of Shame and Punishment ( An incomplete history of transgenerational trauma ) 2016 -2017
A project of paintings that takes a deep exploration into the history of body shaming and punishment. Searching for ways to retell stories about the female body and acts of physical and sensual expression through an altered transformation lens.
Shame In The Wild
Oil on Canvas
40 x 60 Inches
In this painting I explore the physicality of the body as inherently animal yet socialized to feel shame for it’s own flesh, bodily functions, genitalia and sexuality.
