Where are you Now my Love?

Mixed media piece made for the centenary of WW1 1,568 Sawdust Hearts Project in Scarborough. In making this piece I wanted to comment on the intense stress military personnel endure during war time and the potential ‘unseen’ damage war causes. Shell shock was born under the abysmal circumstances of trench warfare and many men who return homed relived the horrors of the past repeatedly.

This piece explores how the yoni is revered and crucified in equal measure. Woman as the object of the male gaze are loved and hated, desired and repelled, worshiped and vilified, praised and ridiculed.
