Repulsion & Desire: A Cunt Story


Limited Edition Prints HERE


From a young age, I quickly learned that my body was a place to keep hidden. It was an object of desire that might provoke others, a place of repulsion that warrants disgust at first sight, a center of societal mystery. Every day I walked between this weight of repulsion and desire. Yet in all this build up and scrutiny, no one seemed to know how it worked, or how exactly it looked. I learned that other people felt the same way, many terrified to confront their own skin, to turn the lights on while in bed with others. I was not alone in thinking by body was not beautiful or in line with societal standards. 


 As I grew older and started creating art and looking to other artists, I kept finding series, like Hans Bellmer, that showcased my own body from a very voyeuristic lens, not from a place of experience. I also have found empowering series through illustration and life cast molds through other women but they lacked the complexity of emotion I carried with me.  I wanted to create a series from my experiences and the experiences I've heard from so many others about our own bodies.  This series aims to celebrate the diversity and beauty of every human form while exploring many complex emotions I and others carry with them their entire lives simply for the flesh between their legs.
