She Then is Still Now

Invisibility has always been a reality of the feminine realm and one that resonates more profoundly as we age. Using an image of my younger self – presented in soft translucent tones, entwined in ribbons of gentle greys and weaving vines – I am suggesting a lightness of impression, an invisibleness that signifies certain female tropes that abide with us throughout our lives. At the same time there’s a liveliness and energy echoed in the ribbons and vines along with the confident gaze and pose of the subject that acknowledges a strength that will last beyond what is first seen.
Included in the ASA curated exhibition titled AGEism
Showed at the Fish Creek Library, Calgary and the Glenrose Mezanine Gallery
