Oola

Following on the chicken/egg question - and along the lines of “Does language express our concepts, or does language create our concepts” - in this body of art and tomfoolery I ask “Are images the result of our perceptions, hopes, and fears, or do images create and perpetuate our cultural/social experience.” How important is “High Art” and what is it doing to us? Oola takes on all questions in her own inimitable style.

Oola is an alter ego doll through which I make visual commentary on what I consider some of the foibles of Western Art History, especially as they apply to women and girls.
