Artist Statement
"I've been told what to do my whole life. I've been dragged and moved from one place to another without saying a word and agreeing to everything I had been told. This year I decided that was it. I’m old enough to make my own decisions, and to say if I’m okay with something or not. I made my first selfish decision. I chopped my hair off and got control over my life. That girl with the long hair is gone. "
Curator's Note
As a professional fashion model who came from a prestigious modeling family, Carmen practically grew up in the glamour of fashion. Yet as a young girl, Carmen still experiences all the growing pain and self-doubts any girl would have. This series of embroidery work was born out of Carmen's self-examination, transformation and boredom in between modeling gigs. As a friend of Carmen's, I did not know the intricacy of her psyche until I saw these works. The femininely rendered front and chaotic back reveal two versions of the same story, much like a reflection of her own existence.
