The motif of a plant entwined around a woman’s legs or growing out of her is a symbol of her genuine inner self. Its dynamic forms refer to free spontaneous nature not limited by social norms and rules, as opposed to the outwardly static image of the body. This contrast between the outside and the inside continues the theme of omnipresent duality explored by the artist in her work.
