I’ve spent most of this wet and windy day adding some new photos to my website of the work I’ve been doing over the last few months. As I loaded them up, I found I was remembering what the specific issues were with each one, so I’ve added in a few comments. I’m not sure what these figures should be called as a collective…. wild women, totemic figures, pagan figures, girls, ladies, I’m not sure. But what I am sure is they aren’t conceived as sexy or even feminine, which I see as attributes assigned by those looking from the outside (yes, generally, men). My figures emerge from the lived experience of being a woman, self-determining as far as possible in our patriarchal world. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
