Red Sun Hat [Woven Paper].
Portland, OR: Scantron Press, 2013. Limited Edition. "In this body of work I intend to expose the tenacious, white, patriarchal power structure by using language as my witness. Over a three-year period I collected slang and derogatory words that exploit women. The exhaustive list came from friends, family, and several dictionaries on slang. Strangers also contributed by writing on anonymous pink and blue cards their answer to the question what are the worst names you have ever been called? In my first projects, I sculpted hats, bras, and underwear made of letterpress-printed woven paper. This series of work makes feminist references to craft, the body, and a misogynist culture." Fine. Item #8346 Bright and unmarred. Woven paper strips, letterpress printed, sculptural. Approx. 23x5" np.
