I have been working on an uncanny set of videos and photographs starring the women in my family. I use hyperreal colors and lighting techniques to emphasis a cinematic element to the work. In my short film, Maraschino, there is a prominent theme of time. There is a big use of the color red in this film, represented in the wig, maraschino cherries, and lipstick; symbolizing seduction, passion, danger, & power. The subject being an older woman pushes the boundaries of societies version of beauty. An older woman seducing the viewer, pushes the boundaries of beauty and ageism.
