Marilyn Monroe’s Lips

Statement

 This is about the subversive cultural violence that submits women to sometimes very unhealthy expectations, to suffer for beauty. Lead based powder was popular in the middle ages. The red in lipstick sold during the 1940's was carcinogenic. Today they just discovered some foundations have a chemical in them that actually damages the skin. Some women are completely unaware of these pitfalls, they actually look down on those that might not comply; i.e. arm pit hair.

        In the 1950’s many women wore bright red lipstick. As a child, I remember her carefully applying it. Women are most vulnerable to cultural rules on how women should appear. This requires balance and awareness of who we are verses what society imposes on us.

        Poem stitched/written on face of quilt reads “My mother wore bright red lipstick. In 1976, red dye#2 was found to be carcinogenic. She died in 1986 of breast cancer. My children never knew her.”


Materials Hand painted and mono-printed cotton.
Techniques Machine pieced and quilted including text of a poem.
