“The Purge,” mixed media

Reclaiming identity and self-worth are the focus of “The Purge.” What do you do when you discover your wedding vows to be no guarantee of security, when unconditional love proves to be a myth? Keep your man happy, a woman is told– even in this ‘enlightened’ age–and you’ll keep him from straying. Slowly you mold yourself into his and society’s ideal of the Perfect Wife, and slowly you lose your independence and the person you once were.
