My series of work focuses on the female body and its relationship to different elements and everyday objects within various spaces and environments. On a daily basis I found myself overwhelmingly confronted with images and prescriptions for "being beautiful." I decided to address the illusions and the realities that exist for women faced with this fact of contemporary culture. 

The aim is to experiment till the point where the transformation and shape of the body merge with the objects and elements until it is changed into a sculpture when affected physically from the elements and objects. I felt it’s important to explore the issue of why women have such a premium placed upon their appearance, pushing many to the point of obsession and most to spend a great deal of time and money attempting to recreate themselves. The work offers a visual critique of the psychological, corporeal and cultural ways of viewing the human condition. The certain symbols contained in the image are used to reflect the idea of violence, endurance and communication.
