A richly narrative body of work that combines fairy tales, Bible stories and deeply personal imagery, Parables of the Daughters explores embodiment and subjectivity by problematizing normative femininity with a sympathetic Sister Gaze. The work weaves together various, and often disparate, emotional registers and imagery resulting in the uncanny sensation of the familiar tinged with the abject.
