Teacup Series

A work in progress, I am experimenting on a new series combining still life and portraits, hence the different studies on display. The series explores the Western Philosophical tradition of misogyny and its belief that women needed to be contained, they leak and can’t be trusted. I plan on creating 12 paintings featuring a woman contained in a tea cup with a flower symbolising the birth month. Painted on the teacup will be a Western Philosopher. All reverse painted on acetate on different layers.
