Woman on the Verge


In this series of constructed narratives, I explore the societal pressures that encumber women,
specifically their domestic lives. These scenes are a glimpse into a woman’s ritualistic forms of
private behaviour—what she does when no one is looking. These private spaces afford her an
opportunity to relieve the internal pressure resulting from the cultural idealization of a
woman’s role as mother, wife, homemaker and earner. The behaviours take place in beautiful
and intimate places, existing somewhere between the light and shadow, where she is free of
the societal pressures of the outside world.
