cassie shaver, acerca de nuestra identidad oculta

Cassie Shaver (12)

Cassie Shaver es una artista nacida en Illinois, que dice trabajar para ampliar los límites de lo que puede hacerse con el arte del grabado, la técnica mixta, y el diseño gráfico, a la vez que se esfuerza por cambiar las percepciones de la gente. Explica Shaver, que le fascina la forma en que percibimos el mundo que nos rodea, y reflexiona: “ Not so much in the limitations by sight, or by what is straight forward and in front of us. More so in this notion that our inner emotions, strengths, fears, and flaws that dictate what we see. It is these flirtations with the photo-shop culture, disability shaming, and social acceptance that heavily influence how we view our own self-perception. So many of us show only a percentage of our lives to the public. We are taught through the media, that we have to work to become a better version of ourselves, and end up struggling to keep those aspects of our lives hidden because we are afraid of what judgment may fall upon us. These notes of social insecurity are the deeper meanings and conceptual influences that I like to layer into my work. Being a mixed media printmaker allows me to showcase these boundaries, by taking a print, and changing the way its viewed by adding in layers of found objects, fiber, paper, textures, and photographs… Each project within itself reflects upon social issues of disability, self-awareness, and the everyday hidden identities”.
