Testing the Boundary: High School

Abstract

Whenever I took an art class, I would test people’s reactions to my artwork focused on female images. I produced my first piece of art when I was a senior in high school in Madison, Wisconsin, in the mid-nineties.I took a metal art class. This was my first and last metal art class. Once I was way behind with my artwork so I brought home the copper metal of woman to saw at home. My mom saw the copper part of the woman, and she got so furious and forbade me to bring home anything like that. That was one more thing on my list of identities that I could not discuss with my mom. So I had to stay in the art room during lunchtime to finish up with my project. Lucky that I still have those pieces.
