Second Skins – The Bathing Suit Series

For over 35 years I have revisited a series that began in the 1990s after I was struck by seeing my sexy bathing suit empty and shriveled up on the floor. I then considered it as a symbol of our culture’s obsession with outward appearances – second skins which for many of us, may be revered or discarded. This icon has been a vehicle to to not only represent the female figure, but also as self-portraits as I reveal and conceal myself in today’s world.
