Ghoulish, Coolish Mom Art: Wangechi Mutu

Ghoulish, Coolish Mom Art: Wangechi Mutu

Kenyan born Wengechi Mutu makes some amazingly strange collages.  She uses images from magazines and medical textbooks, hand painted paper, and various sparkly, glittery stuffs to create these oddly femimine-humanoid creatures.  Her work is meant to address issues around identity and femininity- the objectification of women, gender identity, and sexuality.  

 Look close to catch all the particulars!
