Fading sexual currency explores the idea of the ageing process. As a society, we have been conditioned to think a certain way where beauty and image is everything, we seem to have forgotten that our older woman should be honoured as people of achievement with charm, beauty, a shit load of knowledge and an addictive personality.
The idea for this project originated from Rachel’s mother Pauline who wanted to gift everyone Peonies because she loved them so much, unfortunately the Peonies life span is short and as it happens so was Pauline’s who died in 2013 due to cancer. Life can be as fleeting as a burning flame and is too short to concern yourself with how others perceive you.
You are beautiful.
I’ve used the plant world to explore this idea of the up and coming, the mid and the past your used by date, this is an on-going project.
This series was created out of our love for the Peony.
