The Axe (and the Waving Girl) by Alice Maher, 2003
As a contemporary artist, Maher often paints textiles, ropes and hair and sometimes includes these materials in her work. She is interested in how identities, particularly gendered identities, are constructed from the peculiar texture history and culture give to artefacts that surround us.
