FEMIN • IS at THE WRITERS PLACE
The project is called Femin • Is and the visual component consists of portraits derived from a series of interviews that Gardner-Roe continues to publish on the KC Art Pie podcast. Each participant collaborated to create their portrait by selecting a text of personal or historical significance. Through writing, Gardner-Roe used the submitted poetry, essays, mantras, and more to create imagery reflecting portraiture conceived not of photographic likeness, but rather, an expression of identity through values and ideas.
This process allowed the Gardner-Roe to further learn, beyond the direct interviews, what inspired and influenced the women who came before her as well as those working alongside her. The goal is to present a body of work that dives beyond the superficial and aspires to this: May we be defined by that which we hold dear and hold to be true.
Portraits of individuals include: Philomene Bennett, Shea Gordon, Cyncha Jeansonne, Elisabeth Kirsch, Janet Kuemmerlein, Jennifer Lapke Pfeifer – Rightfully Sewn, Ke-Sook Lee, Linda Lighton, Paula Rose, Rosy’s Bar & Grill – Joyce Downing, Linda Kay Davis, Carol Smith, Tamara Severns, The Wild Women of Kansas City – Geneva Price, Millie Edwards Nottingham, Lori Tucker, and Gloria Vando Hickok
Rachelle Gardner-Roe is a local artist who see all her work as works in lace – literally, abstractly or sculpturally. As a medium that can reference history, sensuality, or domestic kitsch, the essence of lace lay in the connections of countless individual threads coming to create interdependent networks shaping endless possibilities of pattern.
