Artist, Sara DiDonato, studied painting at the University of Iowa and the University at Albany-SUNY. She currently teaches painting at the College at Brockport-SUNY.
In her work, DiDonato explores ideas about the shifting, fluid nature of feminine identity, and its constraints and boundaries.
“Girlhood is a space of otherness that is neither here nor there and exists both as a physical and mental state. The girl, on the threshold between childhood and womanhood, occupies a liminal space of identity-in-process, focused simultaneously on conforming to and resisting established norms of behavior.”
A solo exhibition of her most recent work will be on view from January 14-February 15, 2014 at the Federal Galleries of Kendall College of Art and Design, Grand Rapids, MI.
DiDonato’s own website will be up shortly. Until then, you may view some of her other work at http://www.brockport.edu/
