Nadine Boughton—The Modess Women

Through her collage work, Boughton deconstructs vintage Midcentury imagery and advertising and reassembles the pieces in a distinctly modern exploration of polarity, politics, gender, and societal norms. Boughton's latest series, The Modess Women, takes as its subject the glamorous, gown-and-glove-clad ladies who were the face of a wildly successful ad campaign for Modess sanitary napkins in the 1950s, and places them into a sylvan setting.
