Artist Statement

“The vagina is forgiving. The vagina is a refuge away from everything that dissolves the soul. The vagina is a warm cave, a sanctuary away from the storm, a storm within itself.”

This series offers a different visual and textual representation of the vagina, as well as initiates a conversation about what the vagina means to individuals. I asked people to describe the inner vagina for me, and then created drawings based on their personal descriptions. Each description contains a very intimate and valuable testimony and through the drawings I try to visually reflect the beauty of each person’s ideas.
