Helena Wurzel

Some interesting ideas about femininity and ritual in Helena Wurzel's pieces. I love how she can use such simple forms and color palettes to convey really layered scenarios, and I admire her ability to comment on modern society and the portrayal of gender and female sexuality and appearance while still creating images that are fun to look at. I also like her willingness to mix gouache and cut paper, which I think often don't work well together, but are very cohesive here. She teaches and critiques at RISD, and some of her work is also available over at 20 x 200.
