Viva La Vulva
The Yoni has been a long oppressed and shamed vision. Following the lead of Judy Chicago and Betty Tompkins this series is about the empowerment of the Vulva. The Vulva as a political symbol, as a personal symbol, as a sexual symbol. This portrait series is designed for anyone (woman, man, intersex or a person with a non binary gender) who would like to create to great a talisman in the likeness of their genitals. This series includes a few radical Vuvla belonging to no one, existing as symbols of themselves. They are made from locally sourced sustainable oysters, and can be affixed with vintage american made jewelry elements and semi precious gem stones.
In light of recent events in politics, I am choosing to donate 50% of the proceeds from the purchase of any Viva La Vulva pieces to Planned Parenthood. This organization's services are vital not only in my life but to our society.
Custom Portraits require a likeness to work from (this is handled with the most respectful privacy) and cost $100. Please email me at TherinBrooksart@gmail.com for interest or inquirey.
Some pieces are occasionally for sale in my Etsy shop! Check it out here!
