The Cock Collection

  • My masculine side

 

With my Cock Collection I want to celebrate my masculine side, which is fully developed and expressed together with my art.  

 

As my whole personality is made up of dualities, I feel very feminine and very masculine at the same time.  

 

When my children were small, my feminine side was especially prominent. That gave enormous fulfillment, depth and warmth. 

Having the dynamism of a family and helping your kids develop is a blissful challenge. It was a dream in which I, as a woman, could lose a lot, but it also swallowed up my own space. Now that my kids are flying out, so am I.  

 

Doing my own thing, being able to focus, putting something in the world and having a healthy self-esteem without having to be perfect… This is a more masculine energy that is very liberating for me and gives me a lot of pleasure. Funny that afterwards I keep discovering that I also accidentally incorporated a feminine aspect into every creation, which confirms to me that you can never separate the truth from its specific context.

My masculine and feminine side are in balance with this. That makes me a complete person.

 

  • Plea for freedom

 

Besides this important aspect, another subject fills me with passion: freedom. The freedom to be who you are. To be equal, without having to be similar. I like diversity.

 

I am extremely grateful for the climate in the country where I live, where we have a lot of freedom. The space to discover your true self and find your optimal level of happiness and functioning. Suppression of race, gender, religion, sexuality, emotions and diversity… that's not smart. As a person and society, you get a disproportionate amount of problems in return. The resulting misery is extremely painful and unjust. Yes, if there's one thing I want to advocate for, it's for freedom.

 

So, it is with great pleasure that I make a Cock Collection if it serves me, and I am grateful that I can do and share it freely. I give that to everyone.
