The genesis for this group was a collection of German film magazines from the fifties and sixties, Film Revue. I was excited by the quality of the colours, the saturation of the reds in particular, and the quirky depictions of women. Unlike North American magazines of the era, Film Revue did not depict women solely in a homemaker role, but acknowledged that women were independent and part of the work force. In creating these collages, I wanted to restore power, dignity and a certain savagery to these women.
