I have been working on an MA in Fine Art, which I have now completed. Its been quite an invigorating year which has opened my mind again to the valuable world of learning and reading. I am becoming more engaged in feminism Simone De Beauvoir and would thoroughly recommend it! I questioned where the initial spark of inequality started and in this bible of feminism writing it literally goes back to the ‘egg’ being passive whilst the sperm being dominant, so there you go! I have now joined the Women’s equality party! And looking forward to finding our Art House with Sue Tilley on feminism ( and my son) in the Autumn and Spring of 2017. We incidentally have the backing of kensington council and Hackney council!
So here is the installation called ‘snowflakes’ The cocaine Diet; along with a sound piece of the dancers doing bourrees only.
……….Heirs to a weighty past, striving to forge a new future…..
I aim to use images that I make, paint or project, to enable the viewer to be able to see another view that I was unable to see myself until I had gone through my own life experiences.
Developing and defining my practice through experience and discourse within my personal and professional experiences in fashion and art.
I come from a generation of women born into colonialism and its global aspect. The archetypal patriarch based system with a gender based role division, traditional expectations and co-dependancy.
Through my research, I want to build up a conversation and explore the gender roles of women of my generation, seemingly transitional through feminism and the ideals of equality. Not quite the oppression of our parents, but neither as evolved and liberated as our children.
