A Mother prepares you for life-but a woman's Life can be full of repetitive tasks
-Woman's Work. Portrait of Agnes as a young woman merged with clothes airers as part of her make up and life.
Starting Point Original old photograph of my Mum as a young woman She wanted to be a film star but was destined for a life of repetitive low paid work and housework.
Started off as an old photograph which I re- photographed and added Layers of photos depicting cloths airers, layered and manipulated within Photoshop. I then traced and drew creating new layers onto Drafting film ready to expose onto printing Screen. I created a number of layers which I printed using a squeegee and ink with carrier which created a coloured layered Screen print edition of 12 within Trongate 103 Glasgow Print workshop.
