This series of illustrations is based on female roles and moral values expected of women in traditional and contemporary Spanish society. The aim of this project is to comment on the huge influence of the Catholic church in education and the government’s political and social decisions which have created moral double standards among the population. Values are divided between modernity and tradition, specially among the youth in rural areas.
A feminine universe is portrayed based on female stereotypes, family hierarchies and an ironic vision of religious iconic imagery. Throughout 5 ages of women, the viewer would
discover a universe of moral constrictions and social behaviors that constitute ‘How a woman’s life is expected to be and how she should behave according to religious and/or social guidelines’. Each of the images is an altar and homage to the female condition and simultaneously a claim for female freedom of expression and autonomy.
