Superimpositions

Based on my graduate study of Cubism and women’s art during the 1980s feminist art movement, my artwork began to use superimposition to create layered meanings by juxtaposing images with ideas. Inspired by photographs and contrasting found images and materials to engage the viewer more deeply with feminist-themed paintings, accompanied by projected source images. For example, my Definitions Series of collages superimposed actual pages from my dissertation and published articles to help redefine issues that made even more sense to me, as a woman artist and a working mother in the 1980s.

Inspirations: Fragmentation/Synthesis, Cubism, Picasso, Braque, Marie Laurencin, Juan Gris, Guernica, Appearance vs. Essence, Miriam Schapiro, Jacob Lawrence, David Hockney, Time Release
