LA MAJA - GOYA TIME 1984

LA MAJA continues my ongoing exploration of the Self-Portrait; TRANSFORMATIONS, A WOMAN’S DIARY, EVOCATIVE
RECOLLECTIONS, and METAMORPHIC RECOLLECTIONS, (1976 – 1984) in which I use my own body to create the actual work.
The subject is the woman who has broken away from being imprisoned behind the traditional images of female
beauty and perfection. LA MAJA expands this concept into the arena – the socio-political context.
In the work, LA MAJA (me), destroys the image of herself in protest against the Inquisition-like destruction
of other Artists, with a rage both impassioned and complex.
