Artist's Comments:

This is my Bathtub series using the memory of my experience bathing as seen from my personal perspective, which was an early visual investigation of 'personal and universal ideas on Self and Identity'.

Historically the viewer had been considered male. In my work the viewer is forced to see themselves as female. The purpose of this pursuit was to increase the viewer's sense of compassion, and the result was to reveal the sexual neutrality of the knower within.

After completing this work, I became aware of the early work of Joan Semmel, and Cindy Sherman, two American artists that explored a similar perspective or use of their own body as the subject.

A Viewer's Quote:

"There is something erotic or forbidden in the watching that enhances the mood, as if you are not supposed to be seeing this, but by God's grace, you are! The woman's unconsciousness of the viewer enhances the erotic element, as she is not "performing" in any way, but free and seemingly alone, yet not."
