To Devour | Mona.Dworkin.To Devour.jpg
24x36, Mixed Media Painting, 2020, $1175 This painting is a political statement about Empowerment of Women's Rights. How easily some in this country have accepted that sexual assault by a President is ok. The male represents power, religion, "boys will be boys" attitude, sexual games. This man is the worst excuse for a man,His thoughts "slut, whore, cunt" are written to the left of his disguised face. His body is made up of original photos and magazine pictures of a gun, wrought iron grill work, an orgy, bottles of alcohol, tree carvings. She wears the crown of a woman scorned. Her face reveals she is every woman. She sees and loves the carefree, playful man, but at her heart she knows to protect herself. A vintage skeleton key hangs in the center of what the heart wants and fears most. The image of a fist full of money wraps around the canvas frame to 3 sides... not everything is transactional.
