Artemis Antippas was born and raised in the French Quarter. From a very early age, she became consumed with the wildness that was New Orleans. The work Antippas makes is a reflection of her intense connection to the magical city and its colorful traditions. Antippas' photographic series, Chicken, is an interpretation of the exceptional, yet contrastive people that make up New Orleans. The portraits of Popeyes chicken legs dipped in glitter speak directly to the unrelenting New Orleanian tendencies of fete and food. These photographs are Antippas' celebration of the many layers of the people of New Orleans. For Antippas, the adventure and experimentation of the working process are equally as exciting as the finished work itself.
