Song of the Sea
Work in progress…
I’ve just started a new project exploring ideas of gender identity and long-term relationships between men and women. The work takes inspiration from 1950s book Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh who wrote - through themes of the sea’s eternal tidal patterns and different forms of seashells - of the dysfunctional gender expectations that define the lives of both women and men.
This project looks specifically at compassionate ideas of gender equality and finding female empowerment within the context of long-term partnerships and marriage with men.
