The National Girl
Artist: Maria Flawia Litwin
The National Girl contains charts and images that depict the results of my analysis of the form, size, and content of works made by women that were acquired by the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa between the years of 1980 and 2010.
About the Artist:
Toronto-based Maria Flawia Litwin grew up in both Poland and Australia, straddling the Iron Curtain. Encounters with communist and consumer ideologies within social and educational structures have made Litwin sensitive to the fluid and shifting nature of belief systems. Marxism, feminism, and humour have greatly impacted her art production. Although trained as a sculptor, Litwin's work is not medium specific and takes the form of textiles, data collecting, performance, acting, video, photography, and fiction writing.
