‘I felt that I wanted to make a subversive art. And that I didn't want to do anything important, I wanted to make manifestoes.' This may perhaps explain why Nancy Spero, who started out painting on canvas like a traditional painter, soon focused on creating a specifically female pictorial language. Her work opts for the fragility of paper and is structured around a lexicon of real and mythological figures that ultimately unmask stereotypes.

Son[i]a #64 Manuel J. Borja-Villel and Bartomeu Marí about "Nancy Spero. Dissidances"

While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
