"Nexus" Quilt Triptych 76 x 138cm
I've just finished this piece for the Meroogal Women's Art Prize - my artist's statement is copied below.
My response to the theme "Celebrating the everyday things women do" takes three parts - Nurture, Nourish and Nest. Every day, we nurture our children and encourage their development; we nourish their bodies and minds; we build a nest, a warm, safe haven from the perils of the world at large. In doing so, we form a nexus - a series of connections which bind our families to us. These connections extend to the women who surround us - our sisters, mothers and friends - who make up networks of love and support, who give us strength.
