Timothy W. Jahn, ‘Defi’, 2015, Rehs Contemporary Galleries

"Defi" is playing with the notion of empowerment. As she is defying our preconceived notions of what a women should be. She is hiding her face to allow her to expose her sexuality, (her power) to the world, this is where the beauty lies, which is where the pedals evolved from. The symbol in the back ground come from a Rorschach ink test, every one sees them differently, for me it is the father symbol. So she need to hide the fact that she is showing (her power/sexuality/control) from her father.
