A Torso

This is one of my latex torsos from freshman year. This one has eggshells embedded in it. Female fertility really interests me, and I think that is why I find eggs of all kinds and eggshells appealing. The fragility of female sexuality and person. Egg Latex, eggshell and thread. torso-sized.

TALK: I work with themes of dependency and finding comfort in objects, substances and other bodies, specifically the female presence and body. I tend to explore how this phenomenon leads to both he idolization and the disdain of all things female.This is an early piece from freshmen year depicting the female torso, a source of comfort and dependency from all of our earliest days on this planet.
