What Are You Looking At? Allyson Clay and Eliza Griffiths, Encounters with the Gaze
Dee Gibson discusses artists Allyson Clay and Eliza Griffiths’ negotiation of the male gaze and insertion of subject positions for women. Vancouver-based Clay uses photography and text, reworking painting’s tradition of the odalisque to critique women’s problematic relationship to representation. Griffiths, an Ottawa-based painter, offers suburban vignettes occupied by bad-girl desiring subjects.
