Artist Description

This sculpture is cast to order: please allow up to 6 weeks before shipping.

SUBMIT explores the idea of the modern-day Madonna using a contemporary spin on classical sculpture. I'm interested in images that speak about the expectations that I experience directly as a mother/woman and perception of the experiences of other women/mothers. This is a theme that I suspect I will always return to. It began with earlier ceramic works such as Domestication and The Housewife, and it relates to finding my own personal identity in this patriarchal society. SUBMIT was the first of a few related works. She has a dust/vapour mask on her head and wears and apron. Both are pieces of equipment designed to protect the self, ones which I use in my studio every day. She stands on an old suitcase, perhaps the obvious embodiment of her history, her longing, her journey, her burden....and much more that the viewer is invited to interpret.
