Katy Rush - Kathryn Rush
Artist's Satement: These sculptures are created in reaction to how women are portrayed in popular culture and the politics of gender relationships. They relate to how women view themselves and how women are viewed. I present a narrative, using images of women, which explores the expectations of femininity and identity.
