Shanna D’Antonio

Artist Statement Submitted 2015

My mixed media artworks center around the concept of growth and fertility, and evokes a subtle, inherent feminine sensuality that falls outside of the traditional male gaze. My intent is to convey a beauty that is absolute female, and worthy in the ability to ripen and grow. This work is important to me as a woman whose dual life as an artist and mother are sometimes at odds. I believe that my children benefit from observing parents with successful outside interests, and feel a special obligation to my daughter to produce work with a feminist voice. With this series I celebrate motherhood, sexuality, growth, and myself.
