GA ZE DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF ME


Growing up in the Peterborough area, I felt I would need to move away to ‘make it’ as an artist. The type of art I wanted to make didn’t seem like ‘real art’ and I tried for a long time to fit the box of what I thought an artist was. I devised this project to publish work exclusively made by local women and other marginalised genders. To say: it’s OK to make illustration, typography, graphics, prints, crafts. In fact it’s amazing. Make the work that you want to make, for the reasons you want to make it. That’s a radical act of feminism in itself. AMANDA RIGBY, PAPER RHINO

Compartmentalising day to day into different layers and different versions of me. Each distinct layer has separate ambitions and dreams. Day job ambitions, dreams of perfect parenting, creative ambitions, relationship ambitions. That’s a lot of dreams and ambitions. That’s a lot of expectation. CAROL CLARK

Echoes of the things my mother said so often, re-framed through the lens of post-natal recovery. ‘It’ll all end in tears’ was something I heard all the time as a child and serves as a poignant comment on sleep deprivation, exhaustion, the feeling of being overwhelmed, isolated, stretched thin.
