The Hidden City # 2, 2023 acrylic, handmade paper, collage, gold leaf, 78x56cm
I made this artwork as a woman living in London and thinking about women all over the world, our shared and our differing experiences: the doors that open for us and those that shut us out, the windows we look through to imagine our place in the wider world. I have included quotations from writers - Toni Morrison, Eavan Boland and Emily Dickinson as a tribute to the light they shed on our hidden city and the impact their writing has had on me. I still “dwell in possibility”
