Image Statement: Larger expressions from the Mary Jane collection - sculptures inspired by the cultural pressures felt by many, but particularly women, whose stifling restrictions permeate into all the physical spaces of their world. Sized up from the original smaller found figurines, these large garden sculptures capture the grotesqueness of the material culture and kitsch expressions of a repressive time in history for women. Mary Janes are symbols of 'good girls' and the stifling expectations and stifling of girls and women.
