“A woman is mute within our culture in that when she speaks, she speaks as a man”
In using stereotypical female mediums like knitting I endeavour to find an appropriate language for ‘woman’ within our culture. It is important my work looks aesthetically pleasing and decorative then within it I juxtapose the use of aggressive, non-feminine language and concepts of the feminine and female. Humour is important and deliberate within my work. Initially to disarm the viewer until they realise the underlying subversion within the piece undermining the established and historic traditions of these female mediums.
