Distort

17"x17" digital inkjet prints

verb
pull or twist out of shape: a grimace distorted her fine mouth
figurative: give a misleading or false account or impression of...

This series explores how one image can be distorted; how one idea can change and shift so that it is no longer what it originally was but something else completely.

Submerging the image under water and using falling water to distort, contort, and disfigure the image. The original image is distorted over and over again so that many different faces, expressions, and feelings are unveiled. I used the image of a woman wearing a headdress to talk about today's ‘Indian’ craze and appropriation in fashion and culture.

All art prints are available for purchase.
