Earth is a Woman
Earth is a Woman is a series that explores the various ways in which women can identify with the term “femininity.” Specifically, it explores the relationship between a female body and the earthly terrain below her. The four works are digital illustrations and use vibrant colors to create an ambiance of harmony. Earth is a Woman finds there are many similarities between the two subjects. The exploration considers that women cannot live without gifts from the Earth.
Independence is a vital part of becoming the woman many want to be. However, if one cannot live without the Earth, will they ever be truly independent?
