Marjorie Salvaterra’s work is surreal. It is humorous; it is dark, and it unfolds like stills in a series on women under the stress of “supposed to be.” Sheila With Red Hair is about the pressure women put on their selves and each other; it is about the emotional toll of maintaining the straight-seamed, buttoned-up life in a “traditional American household.” This photographic artwork is about cracking. Salvaterra’s Sheila’s expose the emotional cost of appearing perfect.
