Thursday, March 29, 2012

Watch Nancy Weekly Artvoice TV discussing Storyboard: The Sexual Politics of Jackie Felix.

Admired for her energy and passion, Jackie Felix tackled subjects others avoided. Her intensely dramatic work critiques the callous, violent, and dispassionate sexuality that permeates American culture. Her subjects reflect a zealous, sometimes ironic, attack on ways that women are stereotyped as two-dimensional, subordinate pawns. Her invectives also challenge American commerce, religious dogma, and the iconic representation of sexuality, from prehistoric fecundity goddesses to contemporary comic books, television, and film. Some images link together in a narrative thread like storyboarding, a film planning process. Although her characters frequently reflected an inability to communicate, Jackie Felix spoke loud and clear.Admired for her energy and passion, Jackie Felix tackled subjects others avoided.
