MIX AND MATCH: BUSH WOMEN AS TOPIARY
Bush Women as Topiary: Mix and Match, was inspired by the role of women in the George W. Bush White House, ranging from the white house attorney, Harriett Miers; the secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice; to family members Laura Bush, the first lady; and the previous first lady and now first mother, Barbara Bush. I used a play on words for the Bush and turned it into topiary which are neatly nurtured clipped bushes.
