Pandora’s Crotch is my reaction to the politics of 2023.
“A Woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water” (Eleanor Roosevelt)
My blood is boiling in reaction to the politics and oppression of Women around the world in 2023! I have sung “I am Woman hear me Roar, In numbers too big to ignore” (Helen Reddy) for 50 years! But We are still suppressed, our numbers fractured by others and ourselves. Feminists left behind Women who wanted to be mothers, forgetting mother’s make little feminists. The Women’s Revolution must include and unite all Women around the world. This tapestry of Women could enable us to understand and use our power as one. The Queen is the most powerful piece in chess, not the king! So, Stand up, Speak up, Create, Protest, March, refuse to be silenced today, because we have to change tomorrow.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Motivated by loss, abandonment and current politics, Beutel collects everything she’s compelled to, hoarding it until it’s purpose is revealed to her. She enjoys word-play, creating illusions of scale and weaving together dark humor and whimsy.
