Where do we come from and where do we land?
Wangechi Mutu’s work speaks to me in a couple of different ways. She is bold, and I appreciate that. I enjoy her stance on the human figure as a woman. And I think her choice of materials is very interesting.
I chose to portray her style by using one of her pieces as a direct inspiration;
'Misguided Little Unforgivable Hierarchies.'
I used images from magazines to show the pressure that I personally feel from the media. To be blonde, to be thin, to be happy. And sometimes, this just isn’t the case- so I wanted to show this through the image.
I used watercolor and magazine cut-outs.
