Gravity is defined as "Cause capable of modifying the state of rest or movement of
a body" and in this work, at the same time presents a grave reality: the gravity
that so many women around the world are abused, a fact capable of changing the
state of a woman's body, changing her world of order, turning her universe "upside-
down." Frequently my sculptures are white and have small "beautiful" details such
as the skirt, the gold color of the rope, and the nail polish to enhance the force of
transmutation and spiritual sublimation of pain in an interval between the beautiful
and the ugly (brutal).
It is ironic how women who have been mistreated are considered weak when living
with the world upside down requires strength to cope with abuse, pain, and fear.
