This could be a Regency heroine, I imagine her as Fanny Price an heroine from Jane Austen from Mansfield Park. She struggles with intense feelings of guilt thanks to her vicious aunt Mrs Norris who verbally abuses and learns to stand up for herself contemplating, writing and quietly rebelling, determined to stay true to herself.
This project is part of the Quiet Rebellion, the aim of this project is to give a voice to women that didn't have one through history, connecting the dots and inviting them in a scene that reflects their oppression and the ways they had to learn to rebel "quietly" from the place that society gave them, accepting their lot, feeling under pressure to conform. Their only form of escapism was to rebel inside, moving things slowly like the wings of a butterfly, creating a snowballing effect across history. This project is a reflection of the story of all these women that could not use their voices. I’ve found my inner self deeply resonating with the paintings of Artemisia Gentileschi, not that I've endured a similar oppression, but since childhood this desire to be a free and independent woman was always rooted in me. My idea with this project is to continue to rustle feathers, building up the quiet rebellion and bring out that powerful voice that I have tamed for so long!
