About: Leah is both strong in character and body, and I wanted to portray this strength we see in her back. A person’s back body is fascinating because we never see our own back. It is the unknown for us, yet it can be a source of power. Our large muscles are in our backs. We use them to lift heavy loads, to do hard work. The courage, determination, and fighting spirit I see in American women is the title for this piece. When we’re naked, we are our true selves, without disguise. The boxing gloves speak for themselves. She is tough, and she will fight fr herself and for others..
