Cut Against the Contour

Another early collage from 2004/2005.  This is a simple geometric exploration of the female form through collage.  The soft contours of women cut from a fashion magazine are juxtaposed with the hand printed, rigid, geometric print patterns that allude to torso, head, feet, and shoulders.  The accompanying maps allude to the idea of Body Mapping and the geometric lines of her body are akin to streets on a city map.  Also inspired by Hannah Hoch’s early feminist collages from women’s fashion magazines.
