Mixed Media On Canvas, Installation, 2012
Although, throughout my artwork I give voice to issues regarding the sexist and imbalanced treatment of women within a patriarchal society. The Milked series and Milked Man series both hinge on the multiple connotations and denotations associated with the words milk or milked, gender norms and biased societal expectations. Using both personal and recycled objects allows me to examine and question the societal paradigms relating to the treatment of producers or creators in contrast to their product and or creations. Through my work, I seek to examine the parallels between how humanity perceives its greatest resources, men, and women contrary to how we treat each other, our possessions and our environment.
