"Miss Universe" is a contemporary photography series that uses contrast and contradiction to explore female identity. The centerpiece of each photo is a serene female face caught in a turbulent mixture of color and shape. In the midst of chaos, the divine figure remains defiant, using her inner strength to power through darkness and pain and come out the other side reborn, blooming in full color. We are left with the ultimate contradiction that through vulnerability we find strength.

Working in a bathtub filled with water, thin layers of paint are poured over a moulding of a human head. The photograph is captured at the precise moment when all the elements interact. The artist then builds upon the image by digitally integrating her own features onto the face. Although reminiscent of a self-portrait, the face retains its signature vacant quality.
Miss Universe featured in Human Condition Exhibition
