This humorous feminist work is painted on woven strips of canvas.
The triangles suggest breasts and pubic hair. The title puns the word fanny.

I painted a series of pictures of handcrafted objects. These paintings were as laborious to make as the objects themselves. I wanted my works to echo the labour of the Zulu women who wove the baskets. One result of the feminist movement is that the artistic worth of so-called "women's work" is being re-evaluated.

In this abstract work, which belongs with my pattern pieces, I play with male and female elements. Roses, signifying the feminine, shine like a lightbeam.
