Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

The piece is pretty straight forward visually, it's a breast with a mouth in place of a nipple. When I began planning this piece all I knew I wanted, was to achieve a kind of... uncomfortable surrealistic eroticism. Both female sexuality and objectification has been a highly debated and tender subject for a very long time. Is this work one of feminist portrayal? Probably. This is an extremely questionable piece, all views are true though. Even I can't put a direct stamp upon such an eclectically based subject matter. But we can question it, figuratively and theoretically. It's wearing lipstick, does that truly signify its female? Not in this day and age. Is there a second breast outside of the frame with more stereotypically male features? Maybe. If there were two mouths would they interact physically? verbally? both? Or is this all a means to bring attention to the objectifying treatment women have received for too long? Most likely. But I won't determine that here, as an interesting journalist once said in an artical on Bowie - "David doesn't care if you get the meaning, he only cares if you get the feeling" and that's exactly how I like it to be.
