GIRLSGIRLSGIRLS looks at the easy, intimate spaces of being a girl; not woman, not label, not obligation, not sex, not wife, not competition. Girlhood when young, while aging. The female body is often co-opted for outside purposes, for profit, for pleasure, for duty. In repsonse this work views girls, of varying ages, in the quiet and safe spaces of expression.
