Ellen Lesperance's complex, textile-inspired paintings present deconstructed garments as illustrative vehicles, honoring women who have dedicated their bodies to protest in its myriad forms. Lesperance embarks on extensive research into threads of activist networks — examining the methods of the movements and studying garments worn by participants. Inspired by creative-making as a tool of opposition, Lesperance immortalizes, enshrines, and celebrates those dedicated to challenging the status quo.

In Land of the Feminye,  the title refers to a mythical world comprised of only women. Through meticulously rendered patterns sourced from an ancient Greek depiction of Amazon costuming, Lesperance designs full-body armor for Feminye's inhabitants through her characteristic layering of garments. The result is a phantom image, simultaneously dense and transparent, that engages with the past and the future via poetic presence.
