“Smile, Honey” … the title of the final piece above, and a perfect lead-in for this post about New Mexico based artist Dorielle Caimi. That said, I’m going to let her take it from here:
“Her large-scale figurative work explores the unabashed expression of personal identity and personal truths that challenge our time-worn social constructs. Her work highlights the strength and ferocity of female beauty, through a careful and methodical deglamorization of her subjects. Ever-present throughout her work, are the fluorescent hues and shapes which speak to the advertorial, graphic nature of her narratives and represent the pressures faced by modern women.”
2019. Let’s do this, gals.
