OM.2012.155 - Mitsuko Brooks - New York, USA

[309]  OM.2012.155 - Mitsuko Brooks
Title: this song is dedicated to all the late bloomers and old souls
Dimensions: 6 1/3" x 9 3/4
Date: 2012
Materials: Discarded book cover, paper, gouache, typewriter

My collages express my thoughts on the ambiguity of my ethnicity and female body, and my opinions on the looming, sexual status of the female other.

In these works I am coming to terms with the white female sexuality and/or hierarchy [with the contradiction of my own white and non-white lineage as a backdrop], which is depicted in mainstream western media.
