Exhibition: Deborah Bakos, Take It Like A Woman – Paintings from the She Thread Project

May 28 - June 24

May 28 – June 24
Exhibition: Deborah Bakos, Take It Like A Woman – Paintings from the She Thread Project
Lipont Gallery
4211 No. 3 Road
This exhibition of mixed media paintings and found object installations offers viewers a sense of shared history and an opportunity to explore the construction of gender. Featuring a survey of antique, vintage and contemporary photographs embellished with paint, embroidery, lace and gems, Deborah’s work is femininity reimagined. The main characters in her narratives provide an alternative view of womanhood; the bride holding a beating heart bouquet, the paper-doll groom who has ‘lost face’, Medusa in a mirror putting on pink lipstick. Accompanying this collection of altered photographs is a selection of the artist’s abstract paintings that reference female focused idioms and origin myths. The exhibition also includes found furniture embroidered with text and re-purposed with paint and textile notions. All of Deborah’s visual commentaries are aimed at challenging traditional definitions and harmful tropes about women.
