Tenee’ Hart: Beau Idéal: A Conception of Perfect Beauty
“In David Hume’s essay, Moral and Political, he states that, “beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them.” This idea of beauty being subjective to the viewer is not a new one. Yet we, as a society, still instill ideals of what beauty is and how it should be perceived. My purpose through this exhibition is to make known these sometimes gruesome and overlooked truths of cultural beauty, in order to awaken viewers to the pain women, willing, put themselves through for societal acceptance.” – Tenee’ Hart Tenee’ Hart is an ‘unconventional’ fiber sculpture artist pursuing themes of feminism that delve into topics of beauty, anatomy, and injustices of women. Material usage throughout her practice is critical due to their innate history and meanings. Hart hails from Virginia, where she was born and raised. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Mary Washington in 2011. Later, Hart pursued and currently holds a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Florida State University, where she has been teaching, at the college level, since 2014. She enjoys dinosaurs, radical feminism, glitter, stickers, fur babies, and everything that is the 80’s!
