Trailblazing Artists Worth Your Time To Get To Know…
Many more to come but here’s a sample of some amazing female artists who have dealt with the maternal form from a woman’s perspective… a rare occurrence in art history until just a few decades ago.
From the studio: Naomie Hatherley
The time has come for me to share, so here are a couple of recent works from my studio: Transition, and Derby Memorial Pool. Both continue an ongoing conversation about the maternal form in art.
Transition dwells on the threshold of change; it captures the passing of one moment to the next.
The Boab Prison, not unlike the pregnant form, is a symbol laden with emotive associations. 1,500 years of memories haunt her fifteen-metre girth and fleshy skin marred by the penetrative marks of those who have visited her. Significantly, these scars grow in size and depth over time until they eventually become a distinguishing part of her form.
No words needed for this one.
