Another piece for the F Word, sorry for the repetition I had quite a few pieces floating around my computer that I neglected to publish! This piece was created in response to an article written on the question of sexual identity and abortion. I chose to adopt a seemingly 'naive' 'pre-teen'/'tween' style of drawing in order to reflect the pressure to conform to pre-formed ideas regarding sexual identity at such a young age. I extended this idea through the idea of paper dolls and dressing up. It was also I guess something of a reminder (mostly to myself I admit) that you don't need to reference x critical theorist and y art movement in order to passionately engage with issues at hand.
