‘A Woman of Importance’ as a title is a twist on Oscar Wilde’s play ‘A Woman of No Importance’ (1893), which satirized society’s morals and double standards in regards to men and women.

This Drop, Shurooq Amin's genesis release on MakersPlace, is an exploration of the literary symbolism of women’s fertility and sexuality in cultures throughout history, using motifs of the pomegranate. In the artworks in this series, the woman is voluptuous, owning her sexuality, with a knife in hand (knife = the language of the patriarchy), symbolically empowering her to “slice” through that pomegranate, and destroying the stereotypical image of her perceived throughout history in previous paintings, poems, books, etc.
