That which binds
Athena Carey is a visual artist whose work hangs in the balance between reality and fantasy. She uses a surrealist approach to present current issues leaving space within the image for individuals to find personal meaning. In that which binds, she has combined the modern visual language of commercialism with cultural symbols. Invisible women wearing affluent clothing and donning metaphorical masks ask the viewer to reflect upon the nonsensical ways in which society restricts women limiting their ability to thrive.
