Annalisa Feleppa / Notions of Femininity / May 16-June 02 2012
Annalisa Feleppa’s exhibition Notions of Femininity spans 7 years of artistic practice. Her work explores the visual notions of femininity within the realities of domesticity, nostalgia, and pop culture. Through the uses of symbolism, and representational scenarios, Annalisa presents a unique world that speaks to the lineage of women and the ideas that surround them.
Each series within this body of work tackles ideas we have all grown up with and subconsciously respond to in our own personal ways; from becoming a woman in society, to the pressures of ‘keeping up with the Jones’.
“My interest in femininity is the focused perceptions we are conditioned to experience, and the ones we are distracted from.” Annalisa Feleppa 2011
