Shana Hoehn: Hauntings

Women & Their Work

Shana Hoehn has built an image archive of sexualized female archetypes sourced from ship figureheads, hood ornaments, carnival portraiture, pinups painted on WWII aircraft, and horror films. These images are a starting point for Hoehn’s distinctive, large-scale sculptures. By combining traditional and digital fabrication techniques, the artist’s distorted femme forms echo and mutate across eras, reemerging resiliently to confront the viewer with their histories of malignant misrepresentation. Each sculpture consists of two women, either as a double or camouflaged in one form through double imagery. Whether a shadow, a twin, or a sister, these women haunt in packs.
