Celebrating the feminine



The challenge from inspiremethursday is about the feminine.


Two yeas ago I made three works for an Award here in São Bernardo. It was about womens pain. I looked at old pictures from women and I could see there some strange sadness and suffering and I began to think why all there had this sad eyes, this faces without a smile.

Womens dont have a good life in the most parts of the world. In Afrika, South Amerika, India and other poor countries the life of womens are plenty of suffering. Suffering and blood. The birth is blood, the periode is blood, the whole women is blood. Blood is life, but it is dead too.

There is a lot of pain and I based my work on this thoughts.
Of course is Louise Bourgeois my favorite woman artist. And Nazaré Pacheco too. She is a brazilian artist abouth whom I want to post something this days.
I mean that we, sometimes, must think about that womans in this big world. That womans who has no chance to have a good life.
