“THE PERFECT LIFE” MFA Exhibition

Living in suburbia, it is difficult to notice the many discrepancies between the romantic appeal of the perfect life, and the reality of living away from the city. The work shown here, is a small set of stories from actual women choosing to live in the suburbs, confronting unexpected issues, and dealing with roles and society’s impositions.
Printmaking allows me to mimic the idealistic communities of the suburbs by giving me the option of creating and playing with repetitive words and images, directly sending multiple messages to the observer. The purpose of these prints is to expose the unspoken issues, airing out skeletons in our closets.
This body of work is intended to open a conversation about changing or sharing roles within our own circles. Wether in suburbia or the city, women need to believe they have the ability to choose their paths and change their roles if need be, thus being able to direct their perfect lives.

So pour yourself a cup of coffee, and be an active member of your creative community- you never know who will be listening!

What you will need to know to prepare for the Percolator:

-The Percolator will take place from 6:30 – 7:00 PM
-Each participant gets 1 minute to pitch, and 1 minute for audience questions
-You must sign up to pitch upon entering the theater; Pitching is based on a first-come-first-served basis, so we encourage participants to come early to reserve their spot.
