“Being known as Mrs. Jones rather than the independent, teacher, photographer Patty Carroll sent me into a small identity crisis. I made photographs of vulnerable, stark heads hiding behind various domestic objects as my initial response to this predicament,” artist Patty Carroll shared in an interview with Aint-bad. A humorous response to modern women’s struggle at the attempt of becoming the perfect housewife and the best at their profession. Chaos within an 8 x 8 frame, the complex scenarios led Carroll to a different approach for her art. She moved from models to mannequins making the woman a part of the decoration that is completely out of control. Carroll spoke about her influences that include: “Colorful vintage movies, traditional still-life paintings, decorating magazines, my suburban upbringing, the game of clue, and even Victorian writing.” For more information please visit the photographer’s Instagram and the official website.
