I am a Flower (Power Mask) Foxglove

Description

Archival Inkjet on Museum Rag, 50x40 - 40x30 - 30x24, Limited Edition

-
In my work, flowers are symbols that represent women, our humanity, ideas of sacredness, resiliency; how we are connected and reflected in nature.

These photocompositions contrast the delicacy and fragility of flowers presenting them as "power masks"; symbolizing hidden strength and the inner warrior that dwells in each of us.

In psychology, the term “masking” applies to the everyday pretending we do to veil and protect our true personalities. This series explores how we hide in plain view, revealing only what we desire others to know or believe about us.

Bowing to social pressure and expectations we often seek acceptance by presenting a false self. We remain hidden.

The flowers, shown in their varying stages of life, reflect our humanity – reminding us to stand up, grow, be broken, aged, imperfect, but seen.
