This body of work highlights the difference in gender roles spanning from the boomer generation to the millennial generation using found objects, oil painting, and collage. Using monochromatic color palettes, my goal is to disrupt the past tensions between the two generations and show that although there has been some change, it is a unified shift. My work covers the differences, or lack thereof, that has been made between the two, covering topics such as the housewife, beauty standards, and education. I want to remind the viewers of the leaps that have been accomplished, as well as the progress that can still be made. The goal I hope to achieve with my work is to not only remind both generations of changes they have made, but also to inspire the future generations to continue to do better than the last.
