(Fence) Shirts and (Hot) Flashes

I apologize for the puns, but for this new body of work, I had to get something off my chest. The (Fence) Shirts And (Hot) Flashes series suggests the heat women feel in the upper part of their bodies when having a hot flash. In each of the six pieces, different styles of shirts or blouses are suggested. It's the first time I've ever worked autobiographically.

Each piece is a made with the monoprinted texture of a gridded construction fence, stitching, and painting on fabric that is mounted on boards that measure 18" x 14" x 1".

I created this series while a resident of the Millay Colony the past two weeks. I will be posting photos for the other two series I created soon.
