Artwork: "Lady"

I created this piece in the Fall of 2009 in a Figure in Value course using ink, a sumi brush and a thin stick.

My own interpretation is a kinetic simplification of the female form, without objectification. To me, this piece is celebratory, alive and lovely. Perfection is not an issue. The ink and the figure easily slide into one another. Where is the ink and the mark more important than the figure? Where is the figure more important than the line?

Is this a feminist work? Can a work support feminist ideas without being feminist itself?
