To connect with other mothers, I’m sharing vignettes of my own experiences and feelings around motherhood; painting expressively to capture the complex emotions, bizarre, funny moments and challenges of parenting.
The past few years of parenting a young child during Covid have heightened my awareness of how little our society supports parents, particularly mothers who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic, as we’re struggling to hold onto our careers and identities. It’s given me greater insight into my work that deals with womanhood, often using self-portraits; specifically addressing gender inequality, interpersonal relationships, domestic life, the female body, and beauty’s subjectivity.
Gallery is open Fridays and Saturdays 11am – 4pm, face coverings encouraged (policy subject to change).
