ART: For a Woman’s Work is Never Done by Eliza Bennett

Talk about dedication to your art. Eliza Bennett embroiders colored thread into her own hand to challenge the idea that work traditionally reserved for women is easy. 

"Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand."

"By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’."
