monday morning eye candy: Maya Vivas

From the website artist statement (please go read the rest as it’s fabulous):

“The silhouette of each work is based on classical vases, but the ornate decoration, flashy displays of gold and sense of individuality, removes the piece from a pure utilitarian function. These works toe the line between appreciating the object for what it is, and trying to impose a role for it to play. Hold a flower, be a vessel. They are a response to the idea of being created for a specific purpose/usefulness within the confines of a heteronormative capitalistic society. Birth, work, marriage, reproduction. Through my radical emergence I get to chose what my form and function will be.”
