TheDivineFemininewas created out of respect for the inherentfemininityof nature.
Over the lockdown I spent much more time in nature and became much more introspective with my art. I wanted to create something that reflected some of my core beliefs and realisations.
I came across the concept of thedivinefeminineand wanted to bring it to life in a way that reflected my own experience as a human being and my perspective onfemininity as a man. I believe that the value of a person is inherent and should not depend on how an individual fits into a patriarchal system. Some traits might seem inherentlyfeminine, but that does not mean they should be exclusive to women and vice versa. Biologically speaking, creation is the unification of masculine and feminine energies. This series was created to celebrate thefeminineelements of all creation - not just human life.
I wanted to celebrate the beauty of the conceptdivinefemininespiritually, biologically, cosmically and on an aesthetic level. With each piece, a different aspect is celebrated. Each piece conveys a feeling of all the characteristics of thedivinefeminine- creativity, fighting spirit, deep sense of balance/justice/morality, passive resistance, high emotional awareness, multifaceted personality and altruistic/sacrificial nature. Each piece also focuses on important life lessons I have learnt from various women in my past.
