Temptation

My series of illustrations is a feminist take on the tale of a contemporary woman's charms as protection against her fear of rejection.
She reverts to some of the oldest techniques known to womankind: turning herself into an object of sexual desire. She will be coy and petite yet beautiful.
She will model herself on the geisha, the flamenco dancer and the all-American housewife.
I regard photo-collage to be a powerful medium: benefitting from the 'baggage' the photographs bring to the new narrative.
