Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
"I'm interested in ideas of socially-constructed identity and value. My research explores contemporary popular culture and how we perceive mass media influences propagating consumption. Drawing from media imagery – especially that related to gender, beauty, and material desire – my work aims to create a feeling of cognitive dissonance. Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers... is a direct response to the current obsession with extravagance and the space inhabited by a simultaneous feeling of distaste and desire. The pieces reference contemporary fashion trends capitalizing on the political climate and eagerness for social change. The work is all hand-built ceramic and mixed media, incorporating textiles, faux fur, beading and other adornment." – Jessika Edgar
