Description of show:
Integrating found objects dipped in pink with traditional painting and drawing, the work aims to explore ideas around the art economy and gender expectations. Although each topic is diverse, they contain a common thread – the exchange of power. As a society we have expectations around art, its price, and how the price often dictates the prestige. By infusing paintings and drawings with thrift store finds and skewing the prices, the collective exhibit subverts our expectations of the art economy.
