Il mondo femminile viene analizzato da Newton con uno sguardo estremo che passa attraverso lo stravolgimento dei canoni estetici rassicuranti: da una parte sembra ricorrere alla provocazione, dall’altra getta una spruzzata di ironia per spiazzare l’osservatore facendogli mancare punti di riferimento.
