Artwork > Woman Falls Head Over Heels For Plant... But Is Left Wanting

When this pair of images was made, I was single, lonely, questioning my desirability as a woman, and as an artist. In an attempt to feel productive, creative, and to pull myself out of this slump, I spent the day in my home studio, playing dress-up and toying with objects I had lying around the house. From this, the idea of the ridiculous woman, the “silly woman”, emerged: as I was working, I became aware of trying to connect with a glamourous side of myself, the desire to feel more attractive to the opposite sex, but ultimately the result is awkward, off-balance, sideways.
