Sally Hayden Gilmore: Sexuality Sculptures.

zzzz

“When admiring the color and structure of floral blooms, consider that they are the sexual reproductive organs of another organism. The sensual pop of color commonly marks a display of sexual courting that occurs throughout the natural world. The colorful bounty of animal sexuality: the bright allure of bird plumage, the fluorescent glow from ocean-trench denizens, even the fiery red of baboons’ rears. It is in these details that I take my inspiration.Β 

This work is made from a desire to know and understand sexuality, not in terms of political correctness or social structures, but as the natural world knows it: a wondrous force too powerful and beautiful to ignore. Through various evocative forms I explore these natural concepts of sexual seduction. The objects become fetishistic because they are a safe representation of our own libido. No shame, only a glorious display of stamens, semen, ovipositors, scrotums, tentacles, pistils, vulva, filaments, cloacae and anthers.”
