Mocking the objectified body — M. J. Hernandez

I seek to decontextualize fetishized body parts belonging to the female body. I hybridize these parts with non-human animal parts to create absurd bodies. These works present a slippery entanglement of bodies, each body birthing the next, articulated through both simple lines and heavily applications of paint. The paintings challenge and mock the objectified body, and confront viewers with the psychological burden of inhabiting a highly sexualized form.~M. J. Hernandez
