Dealt Distortions: The Gaslighting Series
"Dealt Distortions" is a compelling collage series that utilizes the unassuming canvas of individual playing cards to explore the psychological turmoil of gaslighting. Each card, traditionally a symbol of chance and strategy, becomes a poignant frame capturing the distorted representations of women, symbolizing the warping of reality often experienced by victims of gaslighting.
The models, once epitomes of clarity and confidence, are transformed into fragmented and distorted versions of themselves, reflecting the emotional and mental disarray caused by manipulative behaviors. The cards, with their iconic symbols of hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades, further accentuate the contrasting duality of love and pain, trust and deceit.
