Titled 'The Girl with the Glass Hammer' 2016
In the 80’s a popular urban definition of the ‘Glass Ceiling’ referred to women’s career path as an invisible ceiling in a world where men always had the top jobs, today women’s achievable roles in the workplace have shifted and ‘The glass Hammer’ has become a contemporary definition of women’s ability to break through the barriers of the past. My piece nods to this notion and also that in this world where women have the freedom to break the glass ceiling; there are also modern challenges that face us today and not just women. The collage on my artwork painted over with a purple mist, is a digitally created montage of media imagery, in an era defined by popular culture, new technologies and the internet all serving as distractions, chains that shift our focus and stop us from achieving our dreams, when we can focus on our passions we will know true freedom, independence and liberty.
