open studio: a young woman with her phone / by kelly heaton

A young woman with her phone.  Digital photo collage.  Kelly Heaton, 2015

An artifact of the Anthropocene era: a young woman with her phone.  Artists used to sculpt marble statues from a live model, often a woman of ill repute. Now, artists model statues in Photoshop using pictures of women who post themselves on the Internet.  For the record, I made my "statue" from a composite of several women, so it does not represent a real person.
