Identity is constructed and revealed through one's social connections and is an existential absolute. The Pattern Lolls uses photography to explore themes of female identity and sexuality through the genre of self-portraiture. It takes a close look at the feminine character and sensuality as they are established and manipulated by relationships, self, and society.
This series stems from the feelings of displacement as a woman in her mid-twenties. As one grows into adulthood, one embarks on an independent journey of self-acceptance and understanding, thus concerns and questions regarding identity and self are ever present. Expressions of muliebrity are used to challenge the innate female capacity for dependence, empathy, and nurturance. The Pattern Lolls explores notions of fragility, hesitancy, and sensitive intensity through staged, articulated images.
