'Handle with Care' by Leah M Mariani [limited edition giclee print on archival paper 30cm x 42cm]
Leah M Mariani
I'm a Melbourne based artist making art about identity and relationships. I am deeply interested in people and what makes them behave the way they do. I am particularly interested in the way society and familial expectations mould us into gender conforming ways of behaviour. My latest series examines traditional fairytales that we tell children. I draw on my experience as a woman and a mother, and resultantly most of my work is about childhood and womanhood.
'I am supporting Honour Her'....
I am a passionate advocate of women’s issues which is why I have donated this print to WomenCan for Honour Her. This particular print is about girls helping themselves (i.e not waiting for prince charming).
