Meditations On Being a Phoenix
Jessica Somers

A self-portrait series that uses visual metaphors to relay the emotions and experiences from the artist’s life within a culture that participates in narrowly constructed ideals of what it means to be female, and which considers how these constructs influence self-identity. The artwork combines photography, pigments, and encaustic wax which creates surface marks that parallel the marks and impressions cultural expectations can make on an individual.

Funded in part by the Lesley University College of Art and Design Faculty Life and Development Committee.

May 2—May 30, 2015

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 2, 5–7PM
