Did You Know?

Simple line drawings link “Venus’s” womb, heart, and hand.


Fabiana Barreda, an Argentinian photographer, video and performance artist, curator, and art critic, produces art concerned with environmental issues. Simple line drawings on “Venus’s” body link her womb, heart, and hand, delicately sketching out emblems for home, love, and the beauty of nature. The verdant background and lush flowers in the woman’s hair reaffirm age-old associations of women with sensuality, fertility, and nature.
