Using domestic tropes and feminist theory, my practice examines the deconstruction of conventional forms in order to address questions of gender, domesticity, sensuality, and feminism. Through re-encoding the familiar, household articles become vehicles for both embracing and subverting a traditional sphere. By reframing cakes and other objects as graceful yet defiant, the Cakes Series invites viewers to complicate binary notions of femininity, contemplate more complex meanings, and consider the related political, economic, and social implications.
