The premier of her 2010 series, Renaissance Reduxx, is a feminist critique of the modern day Renaissance women submitting to and breaking out of societal confines. Renaissance Reduxx follows the pursuit of women out of the banality of the traditional roles that subjugate women, portraying them on the verge of their journey in finding more exotic pursuits by way of eastern religions and empowered sexuality. The series will premier on the East Coast at Art Whino in June and then debut on the West Coast in print in art magazine Guardians or Bravery (GOB) with a cooresponding art exhibition hosted at Rothick art haus in July.
Saturday, June 5th, from 6pm – Midnight
