Through my art, I am interested in creating visual constructs based around the social anthropology and psychoanalysis of pretense. False presentations are deeply rooted in social behavior, especially in connection with self-representation, collective identity and the techniques through which they are constructed. These ideas are swayed according to a variety of sources within one’s society. For this reason, I focus on the semblances encountered within my particular gender, culture and class. I maintain an artistic style akin to Southern Gothic literature, focusing on the irony and disconcertion of various personal interactions and observations of people." - Britt Ragsdale  photo Scarecrow05_zpsc314b5be.jpg  photo Scarecrow06_zps8e56ab15.jpg
