Femxle form throughout art history has represented the male’s sexual ideal of the 'perfect woman'; passive, proportional and lacking personality. This expectation is interrupted by accentuating the individualistic beauty within a variety of different body shapes, sizes and colors. Expectation and perception both influence and diminish identity. The layer of glass on top of the figure alludes to the disconnect between the patriarchal expectations that are inscribed on our bodies and our own aspirations and desires, emphasizing the power of womxn unbeholden to the male gaze.
