Madonna without child is my polemic with the traditional perception of women’s role in the society. The painting refers to religious pictures presenting Madonna breast-feeding her child, that are used to define feminine role as a mother. The young lady’s body is posed to mimic the traditional image of Madonna with exposed naked breast and delicate hand gestures. My modern Madonna doesn’t have a child though, she is having ice cream instead. The halo surrounding her head suggests quite different life choices and priorities. That image collides with the, so called, ideal femininity. With this painting I wanted to stick out my tongue at the traditional understanding of what women should or shouldn’t do, emphasise the freedom of choices and start a discussion about the lack of modern feminine role models.
