Fortresses protect these women susceptible to disturbances in order to embody positivity in a state of uncertainty. Here the concept is emphasized through the delicate and ethereal domestic art of embroidery often associated with docility, obedience and meekness. Found images stare intensely to confront the viewer, igniting thoughts about entrapment and the desire to surround the self with beauty. Women are armed with names that mean strength and protection.
