WIP for the COLORFIELD series

Home: feast / Bathe / Rest - by Arent&Pyke

We live in a society where women dress up as tampons and Menstrual Superheroes in order to protest for the removal of the ‘Tampon Tax’ (a term used to describe GST added to necessary sanitary items) in Australia. In axing such a tax, it aims to make products more affordable and address the sexist comments and attitudes surrounding this topic.
However, I do not believe that axing the tax will make these necessities affordable for ALL women - and if the government were (or are in Victoria’s case if the Labour government wins) to provide free products for disadvantaged women, where will the money come from? And I do not think removing the tax will address the stigmas and sexist comments and attitudes surrounding this topic.
There are more effective and cost-efficient ways of combating the accessibility and sexism issue around menstrual cycles. (full transcript in my new post - link in bio)

Painting: Self-portrait with cropped hair (1940)
Painter: Frida Kahlo

I was in #Melbourne for 24 hours but lucky enough to catch a retrospective by one of my favourite artists, #julianopie - a very enjoyable hour of my life. Julian of course drew the cover to the @blurofficial best of album which hung proudly in my old digs in London. Seems like this girl couldn’t bring herself to look though...

내가 멜버른에 살때 너무 좋았던것은 갤러리, 뮤지엄에서 세계적인 예술 작품을 그것도 무료로 볼 수 있다는 점이다. When I was living in Melbourne, I liked it so much that I could see world art works for free at galleries and museums. #멜버른 #빅토리아국립미술관 #Melbourne #NGV #National Gallery of Victoria
