GRADUATE WORK STATEMENT
“I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood”
- Audre Lorde
A collection of graphic prints influenced by feminist thinking, politics and practice visualised through risograph printed posters.
The work is conceived through collage. The power of collage lies in the ability to modify narratives and intentions of existing imagery. Points of creative reference include the work of Sister Corita Kent and Jenny Holzer. The result is a series of compositions that evoke urgency and demand attention.
Research into the works of feminist texts from Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Judith Butler and bell hooks heavily influenced my methodology. Lorde’s 1984 essay titled The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action in particular impacted my creative outcomes. Lorde states that silence keeps injustice unheard, therefore allows fear to remain powerful.
I intend to continue this journey of learning through wider research and experience. Of this I am certain: the presence, brilliance and endurance of women cannot be ignored.
