For those who don't know, a BOW is a Body of Work.

This was my Body of Work for my Term 1 assessment this year. We had to create 7 artworks that represented a journey. Mine was based on the perception of the female body image throughout time. It's meant to be viewed as a horizontal image, with all of them joining on to eachother in order, like so (http://i14.tinypic.com/5yupqnb.jpg).

Brownie points for anyone who can spot the symbolism.


And these are 2 additional leadup images my teacher made me do. Once again, representing a journey. Even I can't spot the symbolism in these ones.

I got full marks for this assessment, but it wasn't chosen for the school art exhibition. Bummer! But my photography will be exhibited instead. :)

I swear you are such a clever photoshop bunny :bunny:

Don't ask me about symbolism I just stumbled back from mona.

Not sure if this has anything to do with it, or it's significance, but her "shadow" image always has the face crossed out. Was that it?

Well, aside from the crossed out faces, and the fact that you can never see her eyes, I'm stumped. How about a hint?

I gave it about 5 seconds, then gave up. I was never really all that good at "spotting the symbolism" in other peoples work. I'm pretty good at spotting the "symbolism" in my own work though. :p

I drew a monkey inside of a frat house reading script cards in front of a camera to millions of people all over the world. Can anyone guess the symbolism there? lol jk jk
