Artist Statement

This work explores the perception and value of womankind.

Through time, the image of woman is perennially defined by men, for her biological and erotic value alone. Giacometti’s “Spoon Woman”, 1927, evokes the silhouette of the female form, where the spoon represents the womb and hips that nourish humanity.

Nearly a century later social media empowers women to represent themselves as they please, yet their worth is so often reduced to curves and sex. Among the “influencers” then, continue to be previous male generations.
