PINK CRUSH describes the visual iconography of late 20th-century girlhood, reflecting the ways in which the esthetics of an era shape a developing sense of self. The motifs and colors are reminiscent of Lisa Frank and other girlie-girl pop obsessions of the 80’s and 90’s. Despite a wariness of the saccharine, childlike qualities the subjects convey, the series as a whole betrays a longstanding attraction, and exposes how those girlish fixations can remain both outside and inside of us as grown women.
