Suzanne Marshall (25)

Suzanne writes about the Mastectomy Quilt:
'The Mastectomy' is my first attempt at making a non-traditional quilt. Puzzle pieces depict the mammogram, horror at the diagnosis, surgery, recovery, refusing breast implants, and enjoyment of life in spite of a changed body.

LuAnn Palazzo (23)

as I once turned inward to create
I now turn outward to evolve

the body curves where it never did
and hides surprises in its folds

the falling away of possibilities
brings the promise of others

the loss, the gain–
not really a pause at all

together we walk

Sofia Kapnissi writes:

The search for the identity of the physical and metaphysical female body has been present in my work more than a decade. It has found though a more concrete expres­sion since 2005 when I started the series of drawings “360 days”, a visual diary of myself/ a woman who makes a full turn (360 degrees) around herself. There, the body revealed its capacity to be different each day according to its intellectual and emotional positioning. The most recent works under the title "The ups and downs of motherhood" talk about a different beauty, there where the change itself has led to another level of body- conscience.

Faustine Puras (21)

-from "moments"-
From spaces, landscapes, but mostly rusty surfaces, Faustine Puras develops natural environments, interior experiences or external views.
All final works are photographs, none of the original works remain as such, but the photograph itself becomes the new piece.


-Inslapen/Falling Asleep-
Physical changes of a child during the 'falling asleep'-faze.
