Letter to My Mother (6)

 

Letters to My Mother

2017

Hand-cut paper: children's book pages, romance novels, bedsheets and other patterns.  

This series began as a way for me to talk to my mother. She died a complicated and tragic death on the day I found out I was to become a mother myself.   

These visual letters record the tangled, intertwined web of questions that have emerged over the past four years about mothers and motherhood, childhood, loss, disorder, fear, wonder, narrative and enmeshment.
