The work is a brief reflection on the changing relationship of women, and especially female artists, to their bodies, to their social roles, and to the expectations these have historically imposed.

Although I intended the work to be read a certain way, it’s obvious, looking back on it, that it is fundamentally ambiguous. Female artists are free to create without regard for convention, whether cultural or biological, including reproduction and nurture. The work embodies the desire to break with entrenched gender roles and to leave a mark in the minds, or stomachs, of its viewers.
