“Pink Crush” describes the visual iconography of late 20th-century girlhood, reflecting the ways in which the aesthetics of an era shape a developing sense of self. The motifs and colors are reminiscent of Lisa Frank and other girlie-girl pop obsessions of the 80s and 90s. Despite a wariness of the saccharine, childlike qualities the subjects convey, the series as a whole betrays a longstanding attraction, and exposes how those girlish fixations can remain both outside and inside grown women.
