ABOUT THE WORK

In my new series, "Woman", I have physically cut into the painted canvases to describe the surgical cuts made into a woman’s body during childbirth. These medical procedures result in permanent scarring, weakening of the body, and often mockery and rejection by the men whose children they bear. While the surface colours and textures of the painting may be beautiful - just as women enhance their beauty through cosmetics, clothing, etc – the cuts reveal a different story, usually hidden from view and not discussed.
