Silhouette decoys on a log

Silhouette decoys on a log

Rosario Parker Gordon ’20 June 20, 2023

I work in modes adjacent to the crafts from my childhood, using accessible, affordable materials, mainly papier mâché, to duplicate real-life objects. Drawing from objects belonging to traditionally “masculine” activities, such as hunting, fishing and carpentry, that require a level of craft and attention that is often reserved for “feminine” crafts, allows me to question the separations between “fine art” and “craft,” and “masculine” and “feminine.” My current body of work explores this gendering through the papier mâché replication of duck decoys and various hand tools.
