Lee Nowell

Dani Gioia

My work primarily explores weight, movement and physicality through the feminine and maternal lens. I do this through a combination of realistic figures, pattern making and abstract mark making, I incorporate humor and universally mundane objects as a way to expose nuances of childbirth, housework and postpartum. Deconstructed laundry, shapes, pillows and clothing that become metaphors for anxiety and an ambivalent mindset. The nature of the materials I use reflects the nature of a mother's work: slow, tedious and sensitive.However, this sensitivity is contrasted with the use of strong marks and deep shades of black, to speak to the more unspoken nature of motherhood (that of the more aggressive side, tension, tearing and stretching).
