Jana C Perez and Angilee Wilkerson

Constructing environmental landscapes and utilizing a visual narrative style, artists Jana C. Perez and Angilee Wilkerson create performative self-portraits that explore reflections of self through fantasy, stereotype, eros and dreams, both imagined and experienced. 

An underlying theme in the work is an acceptance of age, choosing to use their own bodies as expressive vehicles rather than younger models fitting the western trope of  sexual beauty.

Inspired by both historic and contemporary females, the images are simultaneously playful, vulnerable and powerful.

  • Levitas, Bath House Cultural Center, Dallas, TX
  • Invented Worlds, Flow Art Space, St. Paul, MN
