“This body of work is a collection of one-sided conversations. As a woman, I find it’s often easier to make my way in the world by keeping my mouth shut. To grin and bear it when haters or well meaning friends say something incorrect or insensitive. I learned to be seen and selectively heard. With BIG MOUTH, I am all of it. The sass, the crass, the erudite and more importantly, aware”.
