Debra Lott’s Ingrained Icons is a part of her Earth/Women Series. In this piece she has juxtaposed the iconic female nude with components of wood)as a statement of society’s struggle with both her self image and her environment. It expresses Symbolic figures that are confined within nature as a reminder of humanity’s existence and dependence on that which nature alters.
Barriers and Lifestyle….Life is Loud!
It’s Urban Art….This is the last week to enter the concrete Jungle exhibit.
I incorporate the form of the nude female mannequin in my paintings to serve as an iconic symbol. These hybrid forms reveal a parallelism with society’s cultural ideals. Their identical, clone-like appearance suggests a culture that persuades its members to conform. The compositions express a type of confinement: as a specimen in attempts to preserve youthfulness, undergoing invasive surgery to be physically ideal or manipulating genes at the source of creation – to reach cultural ideals.
On exhibit at the Mellwood Art Center in the Pigment Gallery, hosted by K.A.S. Gallery.
