Femina

This work is an ongoing series of bold oversized sculptures relating to the "female" body. Designed for their appealing aesthetic to create visual starting points for important discussions to ensue over social media without the need to be censored.

The series began with a giant sparkly tampon created for the charity Bloody Good Period as a means for people to engage in conversations about periods.
.
The use of the sequinned fabric as blood created a piece of art that people wanted to share on social media without the censorship of ‘sensitive content’ that a lot of us endure when releasing progressive artwork into the world that discusses and shows periods, vaginas, vulvas and the gynaecological anatomy. The activist nature behind this series is to remove the stigma and shame surrounding our bodies and bodily functions and to stop perpetuating the idea that they 
are 'dirty', leading to better education.
