“The woman’s body is one of the essential elements of the situation she occupies in this world.”
-Simone De Beauvoir
All of the paintings in this series are of women and self-described non-binary females.
I started this series in response to the 2022 Supreme court decision overturning Roe v Wade and the attempt to contain and control women by literally depicting them in boxes. As this series has progressed, I'm now painting women who are displaying more agency and power by breaking out of the box and directly confronting the viewer.
