FIRST FLOOR EMERGING ARTIST: MICHELLINE HALL | AMERICANWOMAN?

This exhibition is a stylized self portrait of minority women living in the United States, endeavoring to explore the themes of identity, culture, ancestry, and beauty standards. In the photos you will see Indigenous American, Latin American, Asian, and African influences. Color, pattern and texture are woven like a multicultural tapestry that creates a new textile from preexisting fibers. This process is much like our present DNA, which has been blended from various global backgrounds to create a post-modern individual living in the melting pot of America.
