War & Peace (Ivy & Orchids)

War & Peace (Ivy & Orchids)


Ivy & Orchids is the second in my series War & Peace which juxtaposes the perception of the abilities and intelligence of women in the early 1940s

with those of women in the early 1950s.


The assemblage relies on a floral analogy to contrast the respect for the strength of women workers during the early 1940s  with the delicacy assumed of women during the early 1950s .


Dollhouse miniatures, Murano glass, freshwater pearls, garnet, art board, World War II poster (in the public domain), artificial flowers, paper orchids


Custom framed with museum glass in a sophisticated deep wooden frame in collaboration with Chevy Chase Art Gallery, Washington, DC.
