“Our self-expression is rooted in the freedom to identify however we choose,” Cori declares. But this freedom is brought into question as women and non-binary individuals inhabit different social contexts, often adjusting how they present to accommodate their surroundings. “We are reminded, in one way or another, that our bodies are not our own,” she notes, “and that we are here for the comfort and pleasure of others.” — Thank you everyone, especially @vsco and @accessventures , for your excitement and support for this work.

Here is a little glimpse into Dress. Code. a series looking into how society’s scrutiny on women and non-binary individual’s bodies and self-expression can oppress and further fragment our identities.

Death. Blooms. 🍃
As summer comes to an end I find myself enamored with the death of our willow tree. In its last effort to thrive the trunk sprouts long, thin branches spreading upwards, continuing to grow.
Reflective. Form. 🔈
I look worn + unkempt, but today in my exhaustion I’ve reflected. Even without ego I feel proud. I’ve found passion and fulfillment. I feel strongly in where I am at and what I am doing. And I came to the realization that my visions may not come to life in the way I expect, but I’ve finally found contentment and transformation within the process. I feel proud to be a woman. I feel proud to be an artist. — This is nothing more than indulgence and a meditation on self. @girlgaze#girlgaze
Hannah. Drake. @hannahdrake628
I had the privilege last week to not only hear the work of Hannah Drake but to have a conversation with this amazing artist who moved me beyond words. I believe she moved the entire room of @cm_louisville.
To all of the individuals out there who have worked with me on Dress. Code. please listen to her entire poem “Spaces”, it will comfort and empower you!
I’m beyond grateful to have met Hannah and I apologize for the quality of these videos and not being able to share the entirety of each piece!
PLEASE go to the link in my bio to see the full videos on @cm_louisville site!!! And thank you @benterry@creativemorning@speedartmuseum for making this happen as I think about this daily.
