The Tears of Eros: Laima Kreivyte on Aurora Reinhard

by Laima Kreivyte

Framework: The Finnish Art Review, 2006, pp. 86-93

Finnish artist Aurora Reinhards work is a study of eroticism and transgression in viewing the contemporary (mostly female) experience. Reinhards exploration of the boundaries of gender identity communicates as familiar; an exploration of self as much as a "looking" at the other.
