Elizabeth Hibbard is an artist from Santa Cruz, CA, and has lived and worked primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area. She attended the University of California, Santa Cruz for her undergraduate degrees in Fine Art and Film and Digital Media.  Her work deals with themes related to family and growing up in an environment with an unspoken current of intergenerational dysfunction, depression and shame. Her most recent work dissects the immutable relationships between the abjectification of, the possibility for subjectivity of, and the interiority of the female body. How do we learn and carry the feminine within mother-daughter relationships? Walking a tight line between the aesthetic of a candid family snapshot and a carefully constructed pictorial tableaux, notions of truth and power on either side of the lens, are dissected. The bright and unflinching weapon of modern digital photography is juxtaposed against the tender, intimate, and unseeable.
