PINK

In Phosphorescent Pink, the artist explores notions of womanhood in television, commercials, and film. Through these variety of captures on the television screen, a story-line forms highlighting the duality of human nature and gender.

 

Through imitation and role-playing the artist breaks through the screen, tearing these oppressive stereotypes apart from the inside. Assuming the role of Alex Owens from Flashdance -- Melissa dives further down rabbit hole to express inner turmoil and frustration. Resolution is attained when her dual counterparts reconcile their diverse identities.
