Feminist painter Daena Title is best known for her obsession with the seductive force of modern female icons. Her figurative work examines societal trends and influences, especially as they impact women. She finds Beauty Pageant contestants particularly problematic. They’re admirable, but objectified. And why are they all so gosh darn happy? Using oil paint, mixed media or acrylics on canvas,Title shows us her deep ambivalence towards society’s emphasis on youth and beauty, and her musings about the lines between empowerment and exploitation; external approval and self respect; lunacy and joy.
