The Real Housewives Pointing Fingers

This solo exhibition titled “Real Housewives Pointing Fingers” features acrylic on panel paintings. Each piece shows a cast member from BravoTV’s Real Housewives pointing aggressively at another. The exhibition serves as an invitation to immerse one’s self in the growing tensions between each femme fetale while periodically stepping back to observe the frivolity of their intense emotional exchanges once removed from the context of their original narrative. 
While playful and humorous in its absurdity, this exhibition delves deeper to present a multifaceted look at matriarchy. Unlike history’s propensity to paint women as vulnerable and mild-mannered nurturers, these muses emblazon the canvas in echoing displays of rankism and dominance. Their accusatory gestures deflect to point out their own egotism and insecurities.
The notion of judging others as a means to uplift one’s self is employed to redirect the viewers gaze inward and encourages them to reconsider their own role in both social and artistic critique.
