Wanda’s art = pop art + feminism // 2
By Sally Deskins
Wanda’s work critiques objective representations of the black female body, placing it in contemporary frameworks. Body Map (Wanda Ewing, Body Map, lincout, n.d.) is headless, floating, limited to the square box frame, while strong, sinuous and flexible, in motion. The appealing style in an unknown environment is akin to pop art, but exudes feminist intent—as in the work of Renee Cox and Lorna Simpson.
