From the site:
In her Parts project, artist Nikki S. Lee presents fragments of photographs. It is as if the women in the photos – each representing a specific social group, which Nikki S. Lee portrays with striking perfection herself – had cut away the images of their ex-boyfriends or husbands when the relationships ended. Yet all of the women in these pictures clearly refer through gestures or gazes to their now missing partners, exposing obvious patterns of interaction. Like actors in plays or films, they are perfect and immediately recognizable personifications of their respective roles as wives, lovers, or partners for a night. As incomplete images that reveal only parts, the photographs also expose the fragmented psychological structures of these women.
