HOW TO TAKE A COMPLIMENT
Blythe King was born in Pittsburgh, PA and lives and works in Richmond, VA. Her art reconciles her background in Religious Studies with her interest in the effects of popular culture on female identity. Featuring reworked images of fashion models from American mail-order catalogs from the 1940’s, Blythe’s collage and mixed media portraits suggest that through a process of transformation, we may see more clearly the work of culture on women’s bodies. She has exhibited her collages throughout Virginia.
