Fruit From Another Tree

After multiple false starts I have finally finished my entry for the 9 by 5 auction for ECU. The Edith Cowen University are asking for artworks with 9″ by 5″ dimensions to auction off in order to raise money for their end of year catalogue.

Women are not fruit, women are humans. When our bodies are split open they do not spill forth glistening red ovaries laden with seeds. Surely by now we know this much. Yet how many women still twist and contort their bodies to fit in a plastic mould, resulting in what I see as ugliness? when these plastic bodies are split open, all that shines are acrylic rhinestones in a cracked, plastic shell.
