Color circles on a dark background


As in Mildred Howard’s print, here Kim Anno explores ideas about women’s identity and sexual fertility. In Eve, Anno summons images that link women’s identity to biological nature. Soft circular shapes suggesting breasts, eggs, or cells undergoing division float around the picture plane. The title Eve refers to the first woman in the Judeo-Christian origin story. Anno thus prompts her viewers to consider the roots of long-standing cultural associations between womanhood, nature, and reproduction.
