‘Ethereal Women’ by Sparrow

The Little Loomhouse has recently started featuring monthly non-fiber exhibitions. Sparrow, a photographer and UofL student, caught the attention of their collective eye. His show, “Ethereal Women,” is a celebration, with “the social construct of femininity as its anchor. Women have always been a pivotal part of my life, well-being and identity,” Sparrow explains. “My painful suffering with Sickle Cell disease gave me an overwhelming appreciation for women as stark contrast to … [the] patriarchal masculinity as it presents itself in society and art. I find that levels of misogyny, sexual objectification and inequality as values pressured upon me as a young black male are … ultimately diminished when I create art that that emphasizes the beauty, strength and aesthetic of femininity.”
