You'll like Alex if: you have a deep appreciation for Victorian era wallpaper
My work explores the tangled relationship between the aesthetics of popular culture and female identity. Juxtaposing various forms of imagery—from mass-produced textiles to commercial advertising— I examine the subtle and insidious ways that contemporary culture influences the private self. My current series, hand painted renderings of wallpaper, takes the idea of the home interior as its starting point and draws upon the visual language of mass-produced textiles to comment on gender roles and class structures.
