Queen B, hand embroidered and laser burned fabric, custom embroidered patches, 2022



Queen B is a fiber based sculpture that examines the scrutiny and inequity that women face when reaching towards or achieving positions of power in the professional or political sector. Direct quotes about female politicians, CEOs, and public figures are embroidered and burned into the fabric- showcasing the shift from affirmation to vilification that women face as they reach for higher positions. When exhibited, it can be placed on a dress form, hung from the wall, or shown as photographs. Plans are in the works to photograph powerful women wearing the robe.
