Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Artist Emily Schmidt
Los Angeles, California, USA
“Armed Bather” is another singular figure in an abstracted dream-like environment. The image of a girl in a bathing suit and cap holding a gun is symbolic of moments of assumed femininity balanced with passive hostility. It comes from a frustration of being assumed helpless time and time again.
Though she is pointing a gun at something, the target is out of view. Her posture is relaxed and the scene appears serene. The viewer can decide who or what is at the wrong end of her gun.
