Pixies have it hard
"Pixies have it hard" by Louise Hapton is an "Of does and men" original sculpture.
"Of does and men (ODAM)" is one of Louise Hapton’s most iconic painting and sculpture series. In an anthropomorphic world where cruelty is the prom queen, rabbits, mice, cats, elephants and turtles hate living with each other and say it out loud. Maybe too loud sometimes… Indeed, "Of does and men" is nothing but an attempt to exit the artist’s own internal violence through her funny vision of society. The 3D Does are sexy and liberated, they express every aspect of a strong woman who doesn't give a shit about patriarchy and is sexually confident for her own gaze.
"Pixies have it hard" is a reference to the moment when little girls become women. They discover their sexuality slowly, first by humping on their Teddy, then by masturbating or having sex. Some discover that they like it, others that they don't. But that sexual discovery is part of every children's development. Pixies are part of childhood. But by spanking them, maybe we turn them into lusty adults? The act of spanking changes of meaning from childhood to adulthood. What used to be the worst punishment suddenly becomes a kinky bliss. That is what "Pixies have it hard" is all about.
