B: to convert (something inferior) into something of higher worth
In aesthetics, the sublime is the quality of greatness, whether physical, moral, intellectual, metaphysical, aesthetic, spiritual or artistic.
I believe that female identity is sublime. It should be looked at with reverence and care. Identity can be taken and converted or rendered finer.
This body of work is a representation based on my personal identity. Personal references are in the material used, old hymnal sheet music and pages from old German and English bibles. I used these papers to create pieces of “Body Art” that can been seen as a physical make up of my identity. The work has and will continue to grow out of my own identity but take on possible identities of female of today. The work speaks to the idea of identity being something that one can take on and off, and it can enhance or disguise whom the subject is.
