Cherie’s art celebrates Women through depictions of beauty, strength, resilience and transformation. “Women are phenomenally powerful – what we endure through our lifetimes is physically and mentally extreme and our biological structures give us extraordinary mechanisms and talents that when fully harnessed and combined with our capacity for Love & Nurturing? Gosh imagine how that can benefit the world?
As I reach my mid years I can’t help but look back over my life as a woman and be in total awe. I get angry at society for making me question my worth for so long. Women have struggled to be heard, validated, respected. We were little girls taught to be quiet, agreeable and subsequently submissive. Adolescence was full of magazines and imagery reducing our bodies to nothing more than a visual spectacle at a time when they were completely transforming into life givers – HELLO WE CAN LITERALLY CREATE OTHER HUMANS. For those of us who go on to endure childbirth and become wives, we find our lives no longer about us but about the facilitation of everyone else. For those who don’t, they are constantly questioned, judged like there’s something wrong with them. Honestly sometimes it feels like Women are damned if they do and damned if they don’t and yet… we endure, we survive, we love, we nurture, we grow and we expand. If you have a problem and need a quick efficient solution, save time and give it to a Woman! If your’e lucky we’ll even sort it with a smile on our face!
Women are problem solvers, big picture thinkers. There’s a reason women can think about multiple things at once. We give everything of ourselves while enduring monthly cycles that change our brain structure so much we can become unrecognisable. These changes can physically hurt, make us tired or grumpy but they can also make us unusually creative or increase our strategic thinking, When we honour how our hormones actually work instead of seeing them as an inconvenience we can achieve so much. If you are a woman reading this I hope you are starting to see how amazing you really are. Stand tall. Be proud. You are magnificent.
When we hit our mid years, tired and ready for rest, we go through more physical changes. Being a woman is a marathon not a sprint but we do it and the world is a better place for it. Women should be celebrated for the complex beings they are.
Why the flowers? Well, like, women they have a lot of the same qualities. Resilience, Beauty and an ability to inject something lovely no matter how industrial the environment. They step up anyway despite their own fragility. How brave!
As I began my art journey I found myself being drawn to all of these concepts. I wanted to bring them out into the open and start that dialogue. I want women to feel united, not compete against each other. I want to create a community where we can share our triumphs, our fears, our uniqueness and make a difference.
What about men I hear you ask….well, Men are equally important just in different ways. They have literally built our world. but Women? Women make it more safe and comfortable.
I sincerely hope you can feel all of this in these works. They are for anybody who wants to celebrate the truly remarkable being that is a Woman no matter how she chooses to live her life.
Yours in Art….Cherie.
