Through an array of campy stereotypes that range from a suspicious housewife peering out a window to a Divine-esque drag queen, Gaignard interrogates her own intersectional identity as a biracial woman as well as the often murky, difficult terrain of race, class, and gender in contemporary culture."

These are layered in a way the is reminiscent of their digital structure."In light of Hurricane Harvey, Flatland Gallery will be holding a small art auction during the opening, with works donated by the featured artists and a few other Houston area artists.
