Between Body and Object
2006
watercolor and acrylic on paper
65" x 45" framed

Margaret Murphy's ''Sweet 16'' paintings depict kitschy china statuettes, enlarged to nearly life size, of young women decked out like prom queens in elaborate dresses. Their faces are hidden, further distancing them from the reality of adolescence. The figurines are literally objects, and the teenagers they represent are objectified by the stereotyped roles they adopt.
