My 99 pleasers women, are me. All of them.
Pleasing has a high price. Deformation of body and soul, stress, faking, pain.
A lot of pain.
Pleasing is also rewarding, creative, fun. A lot of fun.
It’s our choice. How much, when, why. With or for whom.
Pain or fun. Pain and fun.
I worked on “the Pleasers” for over a year. My model was the classical “Venus de Milo” statue. They came out of the clay, I never planned them. They came out of me, sometimes it was very painful but also a lot of fun!
The “Pleasers” panel is 30”X60” (76 X 150.5 cm) and the ceramic figures are mounted on a wooden board.
