Figures of Femininity: Trisha Crocker’s Sculpture

Trisha Crocker’s sculpture portrays bodies of difference. Her army of clay and bronze ladies comes in different levels of abstraction and has multiple body shapes and colours, celebrating a variety of female forms and cultures. There is no hierarchy of class or race between these figures. The figures have small heads, but their facial expressions are strong. As Penny Davis puts it: “When viewing the Army, the viewer strains to look at the expressions of the women in an attempt to find their souls.” 1

Following the traces of the feminist cultural radicalism, Crocker’s work insists on the fundamental difference between man and woman. These sculptures articulate essential womanhood as a powerful and confident experience that is identified with being a woman in a feminine body. When Crocker’s figures are presented together as a group of work, the placement of the figures is essential. The ladies move away from the static qualities of art objects and become to suggest an organic growth. They form a collaborative army of women that is a powerful and liberating experience.
