"My paintings project possible communities of women by drawing from
both a historical and imaginative past, present and future. Utilizing
imagery and ideologies drawn from The Woman’s Land Army from World
War I and II, female separatist communities, fairy tales and literary fiction, I
create constructed communities that exist in a collapsed and unknown
time, neither past nor future, but somehow both. These works
acknowledge and reflect a world where female power is derived from
collaboration, self- endowed agency and connection with the natural
world." - Genevieve Cohn
