BabyFace, BabyTalk and BabyBath are manifestations of anxieties caused by deciding to or not to become the Maternal Being. The mother acts as host to biological conversations that occur within her own body. Allowing the “other” to mutate within the self and even overtake one’s original identity and physical body. Resulting in the never-ending pressure to be the Eternal Maternal Being. Cultural pressures placed on women to wed and produce offspring in spite of current overpopulation, and a woman’s right to choose are at the root of my explorations. No matter how supple we appear, how maternal we act, our body is controlled by our choices as intelligent, strong and LEGITIMATE women.
