Axell's work is hailed as a "critique of mainstream Pop Art", with references to how women are often seen as passive objects. Axell, instead, depicts the protagonist enjoying her 'ice cream dessert', suggesting women as active, confident beings who 'chase satisfaction'!

Perhaps, it's just a normal painting, devoid of any sexual connotations. What say?
