INDOMINABLE, Kathleen A Fox
The reformation of the feminine portrait from that of idealistic sexual beauty into a portrait of strength, community, longevity, transformation, and inane human foundational essence of societal value. This collection of portraits illustrates the uniqueness that is often overlooked for the fast, idealistic and instantly read images of women hailed as beautiful. These women contain a space they have earned with their strength of character, spirit, and unwillingness to be moved from their places of significance. Created with an expressive abstractive edge to traditional portraiture, these female portraits refuse to be easily glossed over, for their places were not easily earned and they each come with a story, a purpose, and an indomitable spirit. They are pillars known and unknown women who hold up many in ways that are important and needed but not always hailed in ways that are public or obvious.
Indominable is the transitory of a colloquial definition of indomitable to give heedence to the local and significant to those closest to her.
