Statement from the artist:
Compliments are supposed to make a person feel good about themselves. However, sometimes they come paired with a less than complimentary qualifier. The series of work I created explores the way women are often addressed. Using blush, eyeshadow, and foundation as typographic treatments, we are reminded of the way we should see ourselves no matter what.
