3 Dimensional* Mixed Media 34" tall Approximately 16" across shoulders and 8"-10" deep at bust and hips (from back to front)
This is a vintage mannequin bust I created to express my thoughts on what it means to be a woman, especially now. Bound by love. Bound by commitment. Bound by motherhood. Or perhaps, Bound by the government. Bound by law. Bound by abuse. Bound by illness. To be "bound" can be a both positive as in the case of love, and negative, while expressing anger, loss of control or pain associated with being a female in a male dominated world. Probably one of the most unusual pieces of art I have ever created, but also wonderfully therapeutic.
