You told me that I asked for it.
On the 17th January I showed my work in a gallery for the first time in a show titled Unit.
I wanted to concentrate on rape culture, something not spoken about not allowed to be spoken about yet is sadly something so common now as i have found through my research. Rape/sexual assault is something seen as being dirty in some peoples eyes, the hate often thrown at the wrong person in the situations, Something funny to some people, Victim shaming and no education around the matter help circulate the cycle.
I wanted to create work hi lighting the ignorance of people and the views people are happy to share with the world. The only way I felt I could address this subject was through hand crafts and though getting others involved in it, through sewing and knitting using it as a therapy for myself.
Here’s some of the other works shows from many talented artists.
Let me know what you think!
