“The exhibition explores womxn through the work of local artists, either engaging directly with thread, fiber or textile as a medium of expression, or indirectly by referring to the connotations brought forth by the ideas associated with the exhibition title. Loaded with gender connotations and power hierarchies, fiber-based handicrafts such as crochet, embroidery, knitting, macrame, quilting, sewing, or other media referencing ideas and associations to threads provide a fitting platform to examine the roles and representations within and round womxn in our society.” (note from the curators)

Our Mother who art here on earth…

Or rather…

Our Mother who art our beloved earth…Happy Mothers day.

I recently learned about some of Mother Natures amazing creatures via a very entertaining series called: Absurd Planet:

Highly recommended!

I am in awe of some of the amazing tricks these creatures have to be able to survive in very interesting conditions, which made me think about a character in a Roald Dahl book….

 

“I thought up secret plans and clever tricks” said the crocodile in the story: The  enormous crocodile by Roald Dahl.

May…..another day 2020

because…

“There is a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out

But I’m too tough for him

I say, stay in there

I’m not going to let anybody see you

There is a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out…”

Lost and the “Secret of Life”

Art portfolio- my work

detail “Lost”

As you can guess, I feel a bit lost right now. I’m also at a loss for words.

detail “Lost”

So I use or am inspired by words that jump out of a screen. These words were inspired by a Nintendo end game screen message,

but I feel it is also applicable to the world we are living in.
