Tryharder photoblogs the exhibition Kimberly Brooks: Thread at Taylor De Cordoba, Los Angeles.

In her new work, Brooks "continues to explore portraiture, specifically the complexities of representations of female identities. While in her previous series... the artist used figures to construct narratives, here the female form is part of a broader abstracted landscape... Brooks continues to address questions about how we frame beauty, and the phenomenon of fashion as a both pop culture and artistic touchstone."
