Double Portrait series2020
"Double Portraits": these have been made during the Covid Lockdown and are paper weavings done using images from Tate Etc and Art Quarterly magazines.
I have been thinking about the appalling lack of diversity in all the years of art history education through art school in the 1980s. Weaving these images together is a response to this, a way of trying to weave non-male and non-white, non-western artists back into "The History of Art".
