"Pulling The Load Of An Ox" © Joelie Croser 2010 (original image: Ink, Watercolour on archival quality stock paper)

This was a major piece in my exhibition "A Handbook For Girls {for whimsical modern sexualites}" from November 2010.

I exhibited the original framed work, but created this open edition print so she could be loved by more than just one...

Art Archival scanning and printing: Giclee Print on German Etching Paper. (Image won't fade or lose quality with time). Print is embossed with Archival Giclee Print stamp in lower left side corner.

Paper size: 430 x 325mm. Piece is Unframed.

The concept behind the piece is Pulling the load of an ox, while walking on egg shells. An impossible task to which I'm sure so many of us can relate...
