Hocherman, S. 1
An apple a day, Acrylic on canvas, 30 cm x 42cm, 2022

Carou-sell Yourself exists as an oxymoron, partnering nostalgia with vulgarity to represent the uneasiness of the male gaze. The women captured through golden silhouette pole dance within the carousel structure; representing the simultaneous pressure for woman to be virile sex symbols for their nuclear husbands partnered with the shame they are expected to feel for doing so. There is a fine line between a celebration of life and a freak show; to which the audience is left delicately tight roping.
