Between Dissipation and Discipline, 2022
Passion Project

This passion project transpired in my love of the scandalous history of art. For this project, I focussed on Baroque Art History and its treatment of women as either harlots or holy - leaving no grey area. I was inspired by: female figures, beautiful artwork, and a thirst for information.

I was captured by the thought that few people find art history engaging or inspiring. Rather than focusing on large bodies of text, I highlight phrases by scholars or artists to reflect the contents.

This entire book is roughly over 50 pages, with citations from scholarly articles, art historians of the past, and my theories. I have hopes of bringing it to print in the future.
