'That's what you get when you eat the apple and destroy mankind'
In response to Georgia Gibson’s 'I don't only have glitter in my veins' and 'Fruit of the womb' pieces. Within my response to her work and linking back to my theme of puberty I particularly wanted to reflect the negative attitudes towards women during their growing years, in particular the attitudes towards menstruation. In my work I researched various opinions of puberty, in particular the menstruation cycle, the one response that stood out to me the most was “That’s what you get when you eat the apple and destroy mankind” so with that in mind I decided to use an apple and red acrylic paint to create an image of a bleeding apple. With this piece I intended to recreate the idea of the menstruation cycle being that of a woman’s fault (linking to the biblical tale of Adam and Eve) and also linking the sexual connotations of fruit with the female genitalia.
