ARTIST STATEMENT Marlene Hilton Moore’s photographic work develops narratives based upon a woman, a dress, and a place. Visually weaving together encoded cultural messages that allude to personal social histories, Marlene creates a continuum of her investigation into identify formation in her photographic series of women. Hand crafted dresses and objects, combined with an individual space, expand reality into a dance of authenticity and vision.
