Tracking

Pen and Ink on paper, 7x9in, 2018.

 

Tracking depicts a study of the pursuit of ideal uteinizing hormones and estrogen levels for conception. The recording of the daily data output from a fertility monitor attempts to bring humor to an often taboo subject- fertility, by confronting the viewer with the “smiley face” image. An investigation of identity politics, the piece juxtaposes pop culture imagery with the loss of womens’ voices and their reduction to reproductive capabilities in contemporary culture.
