Not Your Pussy' lessons in modern body autonomy, is a re-appropriation of power of the voyeur from masculine to feminine. It positions women as producer and consumer of pleasure, not just a subject of a male dominated gaze. This multidisciplinary body of work amplifies our current and overwhelming fight for women's rights and cultural equality by using performance, painting and photography to empower the once silent voice of women. The artist aims to shake the patriarchal base of our culture and question traditional and common modes of equality, power and respect. Using vintage pornography and modern pole dance, this work incorporates the taboo, kitsch and the blue collar into the elite, fine-art arena. Thus, creating a tension between high-brow vs low-brow... foreshadowing our culturally relevant battle between the governed and the governing, illustrating the struggle for female body autonomy within the socio-cultural and political realm. The more abstract color block paintings for shadow the internal and social critique women experience culturally in our patriarchial society. The idea is driven home on how we must control, mask, shape and morph into a more socially acceptable version of ourselves. By layering over 6 years worth of oils, trying to control the outcome, yet constantly met with imperfections the artist struggles to control or perfect.
