Eat It!

Art is not only about pretty and gentle.
It's a powerful way to express everything that bothers us, that makes us angry.
It's a perfect way to send a message to the world...




This piece is an expression of my anger and disagreement.

My protest against the image of a woman that we are being fed with every day.

Against women being treated like an object that can be:

Eaten. Chewed. Swallowed.



  


To create this piece I used an old spoon that I bought at a flea market, a Barbie doll head and a light bulb base.



All the metal parts were covered with gesso and then painted with Vintaj Patina paints and alcohol inks applied with a sponge.
The handle of the spoon was sprayed with a pink Glimmer Mist.



I rubbed some gel medium in the doll's hair and arranged the "hairstyle". When it dried, I painted it with using acrylic paints and a blue Glimmer Mist applied with a paintbrush.
I glued the head to the spoon with Glossy Accents and also used this product to create the transparent drop on the handle.
