I have been mad about Geishas since 1998. It was during my first trip away from Malta
to Amsterdam . At the Van Gogh’ museum, the artwork that struck me the most was his
Geisha . And my obsession began.I have been painting Geishas since.
As many of the others, this image was taken from a pornographic image of an Asian girl
from a porn Cinema Poster. I have been working on this painting for 2 years, the
flowers were the latest addition to the work which was monochromatic before.
Since I have had a child, I have realised that a woman’s body is a garden. We have a
heart that beats with love for the man of our dreams. We work hard for our dreams and
are independent. Some of us dedicate our lives to our family and stay at home. We can
have children. We feel pain, sorrow and joy. We wear perfume and choose our
clothes.Many collect shoes.Others love their cats, some their dogs. Many become
accomplished in their sector.Women breath, have dreams and aspirations. Showing the
Woman ‘s body as just an object for sexual gratification is too limited a view. There is so
much more to a woman’s body than just sex. Yes, sexual attraction comes naturally, but
that is not the only thing a woman’s body is for.
The Human body is a garden. It is a cultivated intricate web of memories, skills, sadness,
happiness hopes and dreams. A human being has feelings. A human being suffers when
ill treated and is unloved.
Nobody has the right to over look the importance and beauty of a woman and use
her for his own pleasure.
