In the figurative sculpture "My Body Is Mine", I infused layers of rustic patina onto a vintage female mannequin torso to make a profound declaration. The weathered exterior speaks to the passage of time and the transformative resilience of the feminine form. The deliberate choice of a worn aesthetic serves as a visual metaphor for the enduring strength and wisdom that accrue with the journey of self-discovery. Across the torso, the words "my body is mine" are inscribed boldly, echoing a resounding affirmation of autonomy and self-possession. Through the marriage of patina and proclamation, "My Body Is Mine" stands as a visual testament to the enduring spirit and self-authorship inherent in every woman's journey.
This is definitely a "statement" piece so . . .
make a statement and include her in your home decor.
This work was created on a vintage (1980's) Adel Rootstein mannequin that was based on the model Jade Parfitt from the "Drama Divas" collection.
