Sneaky Cheek is the result of a year long project rooted in transforming the process of sketch-booking into the process for making animation. The work deals with the ideas of recontextualizing and defamiliarizing the female body in order to give it new forms of agency.
The result is a short animation and series of sketches. In its ideal setting they are presented in an instillation that houses the viewers and the works.

Live Girls was a show curated by Ariel Noltimier Strauss & Ana Mosseri @ RISD's Exposé Gallery in Providence, RI in the spring 2016.
The show was centered around the vision of live, American girls and featured the work of over 20 female artist.
There is a strong image of what makes an attractive American woman: someone who is flirtation yet passive, a people pleaser, a mediator. Someone who stayed positive and fun and yet is still maternal and a care-taker, she's sexy but appropriate, as Ludicrous (rightfully named) says, "a lady in the street but a freak in the bed."
We as woman have found that it is often difficult to separate ourselves from this image; a lot of our daily life decisions are driven by these external, cultural beauty standards in numbers of ways. We are show casing a body of work made by female artist (artist that identify as female, or have identified as female) that transcends these standards. Our show will be unapologetic and showcase woman as multi-dimensional, live girls.
