Bound to Be

Bound to Be is an exploration of the rituals, steps and voluntary tortures within the everyday woman’s beauty regimen. This investigation into what we take for granted, define and aim to emulate regardless of cost or self-inflicted pain, illustrates an addiction to the ideal feminine and its demand for beauty.  I aim to better understand and to spur the viewer to question if there is a cost too great to force the body into an idealized standard of beauty. 


This project has been included in group shows, Un/common Skin at SVA Gallery, New York City and Backlash at Soho 20 Gallery also in New York City.
