Sophia Narrett's Colorfully Embroidered Narratives

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 14, 2014
   “Through the creation of stylized fictional situations, I imagine stories of embodiment, beauty, eroticism, personality, fear, and resignation within a collapsing fantasy. I give myself the license and responsibility to depict precarious desires that chase idealized bodies, the picturesque landscape or garden, luxury, high fashion, and generalized narratives of history and role-play. Decadence, by its very nature, is too much, so the fantasy exposes itself or becomes empty. Whether due to a liberated, idiosyncratic sexuality, or as a result of a sick internalization of the male gaze, repression, and social conditioning, for me, a female heterosexuality is constructed in relation to images of women. My project moves between these spaces of liberation and possession, in terms of sexuality as well as material desires.”
