Soliloquy
Soliloquy
oil and wax on canvas, plaster, ink, paper
6' x 10'; 2' x 3' x 5'
2009

These early works were shaped by feminist discourse on center/margin theory, which I began to apply to the city and urban landscapes in Rain and Soliloquy.

Each painting in this series is based on one of Margaret Atwood’s novels: The Edible Woman, Lady Oracle and Alias Grace.

This series bears the mark of struggle to find a metaphor for the relationship between women and creativity, the choices creative women make between creative lives and more readily acceptable ones, and a sense of belonging and home.
