Cecelia Condit Characteristics
Cecelia Condit's work explores traditional femininity in the context of the conflicting demands placed on women by society. In her narratives, bizarre events disrupt mundane lives. Contrasting the commonplace with the macabre, humor with the absurd, she constructs a world of divided reality, a reality that traps women in a struggle for identity, self-respect, and love. With a background in sculpture, photography, and filmmaking, Condit considers herself a storyteller--telling and singing songs about the commonplace and the bizarre in women's lives. The neighborhood in which her characters live are the suburbs of Middle America--where fairy tale and reality fuse.
