His work focuses on the body and the story it tells of its existence. Phoebe imprints on the cycle of human life and on the vulnerability of the body, as untamable as we seem. She was pierced by my own body and the bodies of others, especially those who have been marginalized by our society. Also, she is interested in the way society sees women. In particular, during life, from childhood to fertility through infertility. Attracted by the traction belt of the muscles, the skin both tight and loose. The bone support that is most clearly revealed by the elderly. Truncation is a theme of his work because of its power and cultural relevance that society wants to see. What is she hiding and excising.
It is opposed to the concept of the ideal body.
How does the truncation reveal how women’s bodies are discussed in parts and pieces? With clay, she is able to edit and shape what is integral to the story. Then, she opposes the concept of the ideal body. As shown in sculpture throughout history and throughout life. Especially since in our culture the ideal body seems to be the only one that is truly authorized. Even for the ideal female body, this permission comes from those in power, not from the woman herself. Body portraits reflect the world that rises around each of our bodies. In a unique and changing way over time. The body is a commentary on the world around it.
