Mixed media collage covered with marbled paper and silk spine.

Created when I was a Visiting Artist at The American Academy in Rome, Labeling Women uses a variety of window and door frames cut from a piece of decorative paper to reveal glimpses of women selected from the art of Rome. They are “labeled”, correctly and incorrectly, with terms used to refer to women including sister, mother, mistress, dame, etc.
