PROOF OF HEAVEN
"PROOF OF HEAVEN: Women of the Golden Age" is a 2010 series of eight oil paintings based on vintage black and white publicity stills produced during the Hollywood studio-system era. The paintings explore the mutable nature of idealized feminine beauty by focussing on the erotically charged, gender-defining images that the film makers of that period created and promulgated.

The series was selected in 2011 for inclusion in the Brooklyn Museum's Feminist Art Base, its historic online archive of Feminist art from the 1960s to the present.
