Notions of the "perfect man" are instilled in women, starting from a very young age, through varied sources. Parents want their daughter to marry a doctor. Movies and books idealize the romantic hero. And, of course, the sports industry makes sure no one wants a 98-lb. weakling. This painting is a humorous look at the myth of the ideal man, from a woman's point of view.
About Kaffee Kang Much of my work explores issues related to identity, utilizing visual narrative. Through color and imagery, my paintings give voice to recurrent themes of alienation and belonging, such as gender roles, minority status, the immigrant mentality, the political divide, aging, and body image.
