“As Is” pries into the world of the female collective conscious. Amy Gelb offers her subjects anonymity, they are free to express themselves fully without fear or consequence. Her work explores the compartmentalization of the female form and its responsibility for the dehumanization of women. By forcing her subjects into figurative boxes, Gelb recreates the fragmentation of a woman’s identity. In combining multi layered large format pieces on glass she invites the viewer to try and discern that which makes one woman a unique individual versus that which all women collectively share.
