the taming of the broad: women in art

Kat Laranger’s princess series works are unstoppably haunting. Check these out. Her quote on her work is wonderful:

“The idea that women should be clean and small and mutable really speaks to me of the power they must have. Women are fleshy, walking, talking, human-making machines, and all things fertile are also dirty, bloody, and open. There is no privacy in womanhood, and that idea is not always an easy thing to deal with.”
