We shouldn’t forget that back in the days of the Old Masters women were legally only allowed to be muses and/or models but never artists in their own right. Even their poses are clearly steered
towards a male audience and generally showed them as erotic, bewitching and available creatures with the single purpose to please men. Nowadays women are able to become artists but gender equality is still not a reality and we must continue to pursue it everywhere in the world.
When seeing my drawings from afar I want you to perceive something absolutely mesmerising and beautiful. But as soon as you approach you begin to see the details, particularly the skin. The way it is done, on the one hand, reminds me of Korean ceramics (my mother is from South Korea) that have a beautiful crackle glazing, which is really amazing to look at but extremely difficult to achieve. On the other hand you realise that a crackle means that everything is broken up into tiny pieces so obviously things are not as prefect as they appeared in the beginning. A lot of women are hurting on the inside, quietly and often times undetected. That does not mean that the pain is not real.
