Known for her hand-cut mylar drawings, Tucson artist Laura Tanner investigates the social constructs of gender and class. She reexamines how advertisers have historically reinforced hierarchical power structures that exiled women to domestic spaces and men to industry. Tanner’s art reflects on colloquial terms, like “breadwinner,” and how these patriarchal narratives, often associated with the preparation and presentation of food, perpetuate inequity.
