Not Just Another Pretty Face 2019

Program Overview

Artist

Angela Davis Fegan

My practice is primarily rooted in public communication and the building of “social networks” as a means of distributing art objects beyond the gallery space. This work is a tool for political engagement. I have committed my studio practice to the private labors involved in the production of handmade objects for public consumption during this time of digital supremacy. The time spent in production acts as a rumination on resistance. The “slow” methods of letterpress printing and hand papermaking also allow for the repurposing of otherwise discarded materials into feminist fury. The resulting text-based multiples ensure a tactile viewing experience and seamlessly transition from wall art to protest sign to print take-away and back again. They are meant for viewing in public spaces, such as, but not limited to: community health centers, alleys, hair salons, dating profile photos, bookstores and bar bathrooms.
