“From her Good Girl Poster project of the 1990’s to her work with Beauty Pageants and with iconic paintings of women from the Western Art Cannon, Pam Butler’s work has focused on the female and the visual vocabulary use to enforce a female’s expected place in the social order. Her new project "Who’s The Prettiest of All” contrasts female imagery with masculine stereotypes and masculine social myths. In this pairing she explores how the arch of gendered stereotypes and norms serve as a defining and controlling mechanism of the overall culture. This project began its exploration of male stereotypes with portraits of the 45 American President (all male to date).
