Self Portrait – by Elizabeth Shanahan

Self Portrait - by Elizabeth Shanahan Artist statement: We've all heard by now about body positivity, we've all heard that people come in all shapes and sizes, and we've all heard someone say, at some point, that every body is beautiful. But being positive about an unconventional body is easier said than done. This is my way of upping the ante. I choose to display this unconventional body as a thing of beauty, and in doing so I hope I can encourage others to do the same.

Solidity – by Kathryn Sullivan

Solidity - by Kathryn Sullivan Artist Statement: This is form that created out of cotton/ abaca paper pulp and plant matter by laying it over bags of yarn balls. Then I painted over it using walnut dye. The forms seem to have the rock like qualities of weight and hardness, however the piece itself is hollow paper so it is very light weight fragile.

Three Little Pigs – by Amanda Parish

Three Little Pigs - by Amanda Parish Artist Statement: This photograph is apart of a series called "Tangles", which consists of my own interpretation of tales and fables. This series is to explore the juxtaposition of how as a child I imagined the stories to how I imagine them now with an adult mind. Each photograph is accompanied with a rhyme which I have written. The rhyme for this is titled "Three Little Pigs" and is written below:  There was not one hair off their chinny chin chins,  When the wolf did blow their house in,  The three little pigs were unrefined,  And didn’t mind to be unkind,  For all the swines indeed did dine.
