This week, I wanted to show you all my Sexploration Project. It was done as a ‘creative reflection of my sexuality’ for my Sexual Health class. The composition is canvas, construction paper, Mod Podge, clay, buttons, acrylic paint, and condoms. Underneath all the paint is a base formed from a booklet I was made by a friend at the Mormon church back when I attended. It reminded me of my ex-fiance so I shredded the thing, but decided it needed to be kept for a later art project. This was the time. It felt good to cover over it, a piece of my sexuality buried but still important. The vulva was an interesting creation in itself; only lately have I been properly looking at mine, all the soft folds so much darker than I expected.
I hope you enjoy the piece, and hopefully I can paint again soon. It was a great release.
