The Opposite Sex
Art Contests Accepted Artists
Fine Art Photography
Throughout the centuries, history, art, culture, and religion have given us an elaborate, but shamelessly virginal, image of motherhood. For centuries, both the Virgin Mary and the modestly asexual image of the Madonna have been at work to convince us of the impossible reconciliation of sexually liberated woman and a mother flourishing in her maternity. In this photo, showing an image of the woman voluntarily reduced to her sex, I play with the idea of the negation of any person other than its sex, taking position against the religious image by showing that which is wanted to be obscured. By having the virginal image of the Madonna positioned as a sentry of the intimate parts, I dare to question our preconceptions.
