Art Series of Fierce Females by Holly Suzanne Rader

Holly Suzanne Rader has dedicated the last three years to creating a cast of fierce females in the form of collage paintings and exuberant dress sculptures of starlets, models, and performers from a bygone era. “This all comes from an inner desire to remove the female frailties our society has portrayed as weak while highlighting all of the exquisite characteristics that make up femininity.” This artwork feature originally appeared in the Money issue.
