© Paul Davis - McCraken - Diminish and ascend

The female form, once displayed without agency, breaks free from convention as Duchampiana chooses to move upward, skyward. There is no finish line: the journey towards a free and authentic self means pushing forever onwards. An exercise in resilience and an encounter with truths buried deep within our physical bodies.
