Did you bake the cake, yourself 
recipe, prints and video (2014)
The whole concept for this Artwork derived from the interest my baking skills had received during various Artist talks and meetings. I discovered that the buns and cakes featured in my previous video work had sparked more enthusiasm than the actual artwork, itself. The whole concept of
 my previous work was to underline beliefs in which Women are associated with the domestic and unprofessional. I found it rather ironic that I was being asked such questions in regard to my practise, as a Women Artist creating work of a feminist nature.
The main body of my artistic research for ‘Did you bake the cake, yourself?’focuses in on the misconceptions that associate Women with the domestic lifestyle and baking.  I will be taking into consideration how still-life can form an outer representation of a particular identity and how female stereotypes are presented through the media. Specifically observing how Women are treated within the fine art spectrum in relation to personal experiences as female identified artist. 

I wanted to create something with a grotesque approach so I whipped-up some scrumptious looking cakes in which are presented in a repugnant manner. Again playing with the delusion that Women are great at baking.

Employing food as a fine art medium also encompasses the connotations in which viewers may identify with that particular food, these could be issues such as eating disorders. Having experienced an unhealthy relationship with food throughout my life, the way food is executed in my work is seen as something quite pleasurable and indulgent. I find it rather comforting to look at food from this perspective. In the past I tended to play with my food a lot and sometimes chew it and split it out hence why these actions are re-created within the video creating beautifully coloured messes with squashed food. 
Visually I am aiming to make something that could be considered to be overly decorative while focussing in on the sensual and indulgent aspects of historical still-life painting as a source of inspiration. I admire the excessiveness and richness of feasts in paintings in which evoke my own thoughts of consumption and greed.

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."
