Sociopolitical Stories
This theme explores current news articles and uses colour to diffuse the encounter with difficult subjects. The issues I often find myself drawn to portray are about: injustice, sexism, racism, politics and child abuse. The process of considering a particular news article by painting an image of it brings an intimacy of care, concern and empathy for the subjects involved and helps me digest the issue more fully.
