Upon a Midnight Dreary Podcast #7: Vega
This photo of Stefanie Vega, left, wearing the bird-cage hat, was taken from Lisa Derrick’s coverage of the opening of “Girls Doin’ It” at the Loft in Los Angeles in September, 2012 for Cartwheel Blog.
The Handless Maiden, aka The Poor Bargain. This is Vega’s second major exploration of the allegory of the Handless Maiden, who sacrifices more than she should have. Vega makes all her cages by hand.
Olivia’s Distraction, though her feet are bound and sore, Olivia is enchanted to distraction by the bird in the cage.
The prideful, King Krow
The Refuge of Sorrow was inspired by Oscar Wilde’s tale “The Nightingale and the Rose,” Vega’s favorite story.
