Birth (2017)

Giclée print – edition of 5

45cm x 65cm

This was the first work I made after the birth of my son. Using the time when he slept during the day in my studio, I combined leftover scraps from previous artworks into a new piece. This was a mediation on the act of making a new person and the transformation I underwent as I became a carer, reflecting a mix of joy and frustration through collage.

My work has explored landscape, conservation and how identity is forged through family experience. After the birth of my son I began to reflect on the maternal experience. I often work on the floor with my son present and his energy drives the process. This dynamic developed thanks to Procreate Project’s Mother House, where I was invited to make work alongside my son in a shared studio space. I am interested in the gestures that are exchanged between mother and child and the deeper psychological impression (and disturbance) that a child makes on an adult and how this is managed and returned back to the child.
