Virginity Test

Manda McKay

I paint with an ulterior motive.

My still lifes highlight feminist concerns by combining natural objects into suggestive new forms. Various items become shorthand for provocative concepts.

I hope to express both ferocity and fragility, with my outrage softened by playfulness. To protest injustice through satire is exciting to me.
