    About The Work

    The artist represents herself as a delicate element in this very "masculine" landscape of recently chopped logs. The red dress is a burst of color in the otherwise even-toned landscape: the female body stands out against the harshness of the cut wood, arms stretched as if she is getting ready to fly away. It's an image of solitude and fantasy, and a metaphor for the role of a woman who is equal parts artist, wife, mother, and homemaker. The photograph is part of the Home Stills series, the entirety of which was published in a book by Jovis/DAP in 2011.
