Dimensions: 48 x 48 x 3 in
Edition 2 of 3
Jessica Lichtenstein uses the female body as a mechanism to explore deeper themes of power, female representation, and objectification. Her work plays with the boundaries of power, commercialization, consumerism, fantasy and propriety, provoking tensions that challenge the viewer. Her faceless, repeating effeminate forms represent both the community of women in the world and the individual characteristics that make up a single woman. Varied body positions differentiate each figure and yet harmoniously contribute to the texture of the leafy, vibrant trees that unifies them. Her work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions and art fairs internationally and has been featured in Surface Magazine, Hamptons Magazine, and Architectural Digest among many others.
