Embodying notions of transformation, this floral version of the female ovaries stand as symbols of fertility and fragility. Young women starting their menstrual cycles are also going through a transformation.
Janine Dello is an emerging artist based in Adelaide, South Australia. Janine’s art practice is driven by her obsession with the visual and material culture of femininity and her figurative oil paintings explore the relationship women have with self, using narratives that reflect on the impact of cultural anxieties.
