Debra Franses- Bean's use of the handbag as an iconic form began as a method for self portraiture. However, upon the works completion it became apparent that they operate on a more universal level where they reference the female condition. The handbag and its contents reflects all women's cultures and identities. The themes running through the ready made and cast sculptures are bitter sweet and funny. The significance of the design has developed from the personal and turned into an expression for culture in our time.
