Unsweet is a body of work created out of a response to patriarchal ideals that have been imposed upon me. In particular, this series focuses on how using terms like sweetie, honey, and sugar belittles others. It is my first body of work pertaining to womens' rights. These terms used in inappropriate situations ( for example with strangers) are all too common and are used to establish power over the other person.

I use candy ironically to visually articulate my concept that is anything but sweet, in fact it is unsweet.
