Incision (2008, 6 by 8 feet)


Maria Tsaguriya

Here, Tsaguriya uses comical biomorphic forms, fabric, and stitching to challenge viewers to consider the "masked brutality of the female form" and the alienation from the surgeon and themselves women experience when undergoing surgery, particularly breast surgery.

more about this artist   index of artists  
 
  Maria Tsaguriya (b. 1986) employs organic forms and playful imagery in paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Tsaguriya describes her comic style as a tactic that "expresses my ideas in a playful way that pulls in the oblivious vewer, then affects them slowly through their analysis of the way the forms interact."
