The first Army I did was back 2011. It was a very personal piece where I wanted to depict the struggles of surviving as a woman artist whilst retaining integrity and free creativity.
Since then a lot of theses armed female groups have followed in my work and ithey always carry an agressivity geared towards the protection of something vulnerable like childhood, innocence, freedom, irreverence etc...
They are intimate pieces of course but they also echo consciouly the “gender” changes our societies are undergoing at the moment
The latest releases, Army II and III share that common theme. They are also a little more light hearted than some of my previous works. Humour is a weapon of choice, one we should fight to retain as an expression of free speech and right to debate
Lately with all the stories we know so well and triggered by the Weinstein affair, I find that any public comment going against that powerful wave of strong armed feminism is forbidden and thrown upon. It's a shame really because when out of the public eye, people's opinions are a lot more moderate.
Feminism is really a cry for gender equality, and not a battle of the sexes
