"Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’"

Been reading about art and ethics again (why do I do it?), trying to think through the idea that something can be an ethically important and critical action, and still cause great suffering. There is something particularly poignant about enacting this complicated dynamic upon the artist’s own skin. And it activates something deeply empathetic— palms tingle, eyes avert.
