The painting 'ICON' was inspired by thinking about labels, especially the labels a woman bears. The collaged images are from my collection of magazines and discarded books I have gathered over many years. They include the 'iconic' mother, teacher, nurse as well as recognized famous women: Marie Curie, Indira Gahndi; movie stars etc. including the first woman astronaut and race car driver. The most disturbing images came from my son's skateboard magazines - these young girls were photographed drunk, passedout or nude - we have not come far after all.
In the background are stamped out lines of various objects associated with women.
