About the Giclee Prints:
**Dimensions are for paper size. Images are smaller to allow for framing and matting.

It will be printed on Somerset Velvet paper using an Epson Stylus Pro 9900 printer with Epson Ultrachrome HDR inks. Somerset Velvet paper is acid free to ensure archivability and engineered to give the highest resolution and color saturation possible allowing for rich details, vivid color reproduction, and long term durability. Epson Ultrachrome HDR inks are pigmented inks with high pigment density, resin coating for more stability, higher color accuracy, greater subtlety, and smoother gradations.

 

About the Original:

“Hype” is a direct manifestation of my palatable angst regarding advertising and its perpetuation of the myth that “you are not enough as you are”. 

These seemingly innocuous snippets of text came from just two magazines published for a female audience and tell us what we need, how to live, and who we “should be.” Rather than building us up as the publishers would have you believe, they are actually tearing us down.

This kind of hype creates struggles of inadequacy for most women, including myself; we face these damaging messages on a daily basis from every media outlet and, by extension, every other person we come in contact with.

The need to create this piece was two-fold: first as an outlet of my personal frustration and a sharing of my story; and second as a reminder to us all that advertising is not truth, is it just hype.
