'The Original Women: He Condemned Them'

2021

 

A sculpture surrounded in latex, human hair and gold leaf that represents a relic or shrine in honor of Lilith and Eve - The first women and wives of Adam who are both deemed creators of original sin.

 

There is a glass spy hole in this sculpture where it is possible to see the relics of Lilith (made of clay) and Eve (made of rib). This relic mimics an ornament found within Catholic churches, except this one attempts to prompt conversation about the ways biblical women and feminine figures are represented/misrepresented.

Art Council supported commission for Ride Your Pony No.4 exhibition at Abingdon Studios, Blackpool.
