Women’s Work exhibition opens this week!

The Women’s Work exhibition opens this week at Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA.

The exhibition launches with a celebratory event on Wednesday 11th, 5-7pm, and then runs until the end of October.  For more information and opening times go to:

Organised in partnership by Rowan Arts with Trust for London and curated by Shiri Shalmy, the exhibition Women’s Work features work by emergent and established Islington artists exploring women’s cultural, social, political and domestic lives.

I’ve two images in the show – the first two in my Ophelia series of limited edition polaroid emulsion lifts.

Here’s Ophelia #1.  I’m also very pleased to say thank you to Rowan Arts for choosing Ophelia #2 as one of the promotional images for the show!

Ophelia #1

Ophelia #1 from the series Ophelia #1-6.
Limited edition polaroid emulsion lifts onto water colour paper.

These are original Polaroid Emulsion Lifts onto acid free water colour paper.  Signed recto, mounted on conservation grade board.  Each print is unique and handmade by me.

Shot underwater, the photographs are made into Polaroid 669 prints and soaked in a hot water bath to lift the emulsion containing the image from the paper beneath. The emulsion is then floated onto water colour paper and arranged into position. The very nature of the process continues the theme of the subject matter, and ensures that each print is completely unique in its tones and arrangement.

Image size – approximately 12cm x 9cm, mount size A3.  Total edition run of 30 sets.
