Overgave / Surrender

What does the male want from the female? That’s what I ask myself by the first sculpture I made with a women-stamp incorporated. The visual language that I use while making a male portrait was not one on one applicable. With a woman a scar is decay and disease while by a man it stands for toughness and strength. It shows how sex specific you look. Therefore, this first step, in which I try to find out what the “male gaze” means. While at the same time learn to look past it and make the feminine visible.
