"Anonymous Wowen "

Galerie XII Los Angeles
GALERIE XII is pleased to welcome American photographer, Patty Carroll’s first solo show in Los Angeles.
Without identities, these “Anonymous Women” are visual metaphors. Patty Carroll addresses women and their complicated relationships with domesticity. By camouflaging the figure in drapery and/or domestic objects, Carroll creates a dark and humorous game of hide-and-seek between her viewers and the Anonymous Woman. She has called these pictures "un-portraits" because they are not real portraits. While people have contended that her photographs of women in various phases of anonymity could be interpreted as everything from commentaries on women’s fight for identity to digs at commercialism, Carroll is happy for viewers to read what they want into her work.
