A Substitute World
Works in A Substitute World are made using the formal qualities and underlying frameworks of traditionally male-dominated practices in photography. By monumentalizing space, I confront the viewer with an amplified record of observation and exaggerate the weight I felt in these spaces. The end result are images that offer a baronial clarity without the expected gender-normative sentimentality. I create in contrast to the implied gender hierarchies and boundaries applied to women artists, who are canonized chiefly for personal, intimate exposures.
