Sarah Holden

Sarah Holden’s work investigates how female identity is constructed and performed. Holden sources and celebrates imagery and histories of women that rebel against cultural expectations of how women are “supposed” to act. Holden uses traditional and non-traditional craft techniques to challenge these expectations by creating a role reversal through material. Beautifying steel and turning lace into strong and structural elements allows Holden to interrupt their expected gender roles and create rebellious and beautiful adornment.
