Seeds Sex & Menopause
Solo Exhibition, Form Gallery, Christchurch - February 2009.
This work Seeds Sex & Menopause acknowledges and celebrates the fertile phase of life.
Seeds: Relate to male but also symbolize new beginnings and possibilities.
Sex: Activity, fertility, reproduction; and
Menopause: The transition from function and vulnerability to freedom.
Other ideas invested in this work: My interest in forms, function, behaviours and patterns which may occur on a cellular or bacterial level and equally on a macrocosmic scale. Relationships between objects or organisms - what draws them together or holds them apart; attraction and repulsion. The wholeness of everything broken down to its smaller and smaller parts. The colour palette of black and white / pink and blue: the dichotomy male and female, colour-coding babies; pink is so personal and red - the colour that connects us, of tissue and blood - our biological essence. Red also symbolizes passion, love and fertility.
