Created in 2020. Artwork Dimensions (w x h x d): 60 x 60 x 5 in. "Lip Service" is a mixed media artwork that explores the complex relationship between language, communication, and power. The piece is a visual commentary on the ways in which language can be used as a tool of manipulation and control, particularly in the realm of gender and sexuality. Through the use of collage and painting techniques, I have created a surreal landscape where disembodied lips float in space, evoking the idea of words and speech being detached from their original context and meaning. The use of bright, bold colors and playful imagery serves to subvert the seriousness of the subject matter, inviting the viewer to engage with the piece on both an emotional and intellectual level. Ultimately, "Lip Service" seeks to challenge viewers to consider the ways in which language shapes our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us, and to question the power dynamics inherent in our modes of communication.
