Artist Statement
Liberty is a contemporary fine and craft artist, predominantly using fiber and metalworking to navigate different facets of labor and the experience of feminine bodies, particularly in association with power dynamics in western gender and identity. Using laborious mediums, and focusing on the handmade, Liberty uses work and craftsmanship as a conceptual tool. Her experiences with craft mediums often combine, subverting material history to turn social assumptions tied to them on their head so as to rethink western conceptions of masculinity and femininity through ties to gendered labor.
