“My paintings are not about what is seen, They are about what is known forever in my mind.” –Agnes Martin, Artist
My paintings and drawings are messages about the female figure, as a woman and as a soldier, just like myself and the psychological outcome of being in war. The images in my art represent the images from my memories and from my deployment to the 2003 Iraqi war. Consequently, I want to be a voice of the way the military is been seen from a different perspective in this contemporary time, changing the cultural and social approaches of what is traditionally accepted. Ultimately, my purpose is to express an idea of what is to be a female soldier and share my military experiences through my work. By using the female figure and military symbols, I aim to imply a female figure trapped in a different world, yet that still projects an internal mystical power of the female body.
This exhibition is free and open to the public.
