Signed and editioned. From the Wounded series, in which Rebecca Martinez has photographed vintage mannequins, representing an idealized, unobtainable, youthful perfection. "Everything in the physical world, both animate and inanimate, is challenged and effected by time,' she writes. 'The quest for perfection is a continual battle against the forces of aging and injury, and maintenance of beauty requires increasing artifice. These generic beauty icons are empty vessels, and achieve individuality and their own unique character only after they become marked by usage and decay. This damage is a reminder of our own mortality. Just as the humans they represent, these inanimate objects do not escape the ravages of time. Damage of these facsimiles of ourselves is a memento of the transitory nature of perceived physical perfection and a reflection of the human experience."'
