Becoming Earth

"Becoming Earth"
Mixed media on canvas, 2009, 40x50cm

I am interested in gender ambiguity. In this painting, a condom becomes feminine. The question is, 'Does a condom cover masculinity or provide an inner membrane for femininity?' In this painting it becomes the fine lining between the masculine and the feminine, quite literally but also symbolically. It is what binds the two together.
