From the Artist:
This body of work investigates the fantasy world of the reality television series “The Bachelor” and utilizes it as a device to focus on our fascination with the emotions of women, as well as their demonization. These pliable, squishy sculptures exist in a world with an unstable definition of reality. Constant surveillance and an overemphasis on romance is woven into these pillowy structures. Taking cues from the female-led Pattern and Decoration movement and the rich history of storytelling through textiles, the glittery tears of these women hint at trauma and heartbreak.
