Collages > And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt (2016-Present)

And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt is a body of work I began making while an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center in August of 2016. The catalyst for the project was a personal trauma I experienced just before the residency. The work evolved into an emotional response to the current political and cultural climate regarding objectification of the female body, reproductive rights, sexual assault and continuous attacks on a woman's right to be autonomous. Using vintage advertisements and images as well as found objects, I am continuing to explore how, as much as things change, they still stay very much the same.
