Felicia’s art draws me in and makes me think. Her use of flowers to engulf women’s faces reminds me of the role flowers play in fashion and style. Whether through the clothing women wear or the perfumes that make them alluring and approachable, flowers are an integral part of historical and contemporary depictions of fashion and style.
In her artist’s statement Felicia says her work investigates the human condition and represents the kind of exploration of self often necessary to ensure survival in relationships and ever-changing cultural environments. Her points of reference include notions of religion, spirituality, cultural beliefs and expectations, psychology as well as the media depiction of women and family values.
