“Elsa Bennet” is a paradox.  Her expression is pessimistic and hopeful at the same time.  She has full breasts and thick arms to show the heartiness of her life, but her cheeks are concave and her eyes searching hungrily – even desperately.  Behind her is a misshapen crescent moon, which is an icon of hope and new beginning.  The artist puts all contradictions and confusions out in front with “Elsa Bennet” making clear her need for questions more than answers.
