Feminine Rose

There’s a long-standing tradition throughout history to use flowers as symbols of the female genitalia.
The vagina was once considered incredibly sacred and the gateway between heaven and planet Earth. In this series I paint roses to address the beauty associated with the topic of female sexuality and to praise women. The labia form the entrance to the vagina, just like pedals form the entrance of the center of a rose. Pink, plumped and beautifully blossoming when pleasured.
