The Medusa Portraits explore aspects of female aging and the association of the “feminine” in Western philosophy and culture to earth and decay, as well as its biological connections to birth and life.  Referencing the Greek myth of Medusa, the portraits allude to the connections between female desire, female rage, and the physical body.  
The series explores the aging “feminine” as non-binary to the “masculine” while still maintaining its connections to the biological and the physical: as linked to the earth, to life and death, order and disorder.  My experience of aging is complex and filled with contradictions: age has brought with it not only knowledge and power, but also fragility and loss – and these portraits reflect both.
