SELF ēf-face: A Large Scale Portrait Series By Lee Cripps

When: June 4-21 2015

This series of paintings is a direct comment on the age of the selfie. Female youth in particular utilize this vanity vehicle as one of the few, if any, safe ways to explore their own sexuality, currently a non-existent female right of passage in any age or culture. The question is, is this online phenomenon more about owning their own sexual power or are these young women cow towing to impossible standards set by the fashion industry patriarchs? These portraits discover the awkward beauty in their translation. Opening reception June 4, 7-9pm.
