About the Artwork

Wrinkles are the Measures of Time is a collaged artwork depicting two female bodies with frying pans masking their faces. The piece is humorous with a serious undertone questioning the physical and emotional burden that society places upon women and their bodies. The balance of the frying pans in a yin, yang fashion may symbolize the duality of domesticity which can be both empowering and oppressive for women. The collaged medium serves as a metaphor for the piecing together of female identity from various societal expectations and experiences.
