This art piece is inspired by my interests in philosophy, politics and nature. I am moved by how closely linked we are to all natural forms and life. I often think of the complex chances of how I even came to exist, not to mention as a human form rather than some other fascinating creature. I also often think about how long my life will last and how long my bones could continue to exist. From this, I have created a woman of feminine beauty in contrast with the bones of a beast.
I have people pose for my nude art pieces, though use my imagination to create a skull and sense of light. I placed emphasis on the nipples as I find it ridiculous that mainstream society accepts media’s perspective on nudity as inappropriate for public viewing; in contrast to what violent and abusive content can be shared.
This large piece is sure to spark up conversation and debate if placed in your dinning room- though it may impact the taste of rib eye fillet.
As always, ready to hang and sealed
