Jessica Ballantyne’s Venus Confined
A Short Clip of the Making of.
Inspired by the Venus of Willendorf statue, these charcoal pieces explore the female body as a fertility object and give an active element to the rather passive and small statue on which the figures are based.
With these works, I hope to show a body that is dynamic, expressive and threatening to burst from its confines (in this case the egg-like structure that is a symbol of fertility).
Hope you enjoy, please leave a comment below if you like!
