Acrylic paint on canvas
140 x 100 cm
Pattern is often painstakingly reiterated in Janet Currier‘s work. The artist uses this as a way of honouring the skill and intimate labour of looking after others. The maternal subject, for instance, as shown here in ‘Shitstorm’, is represented by the woman in the apron and it similarly often features in her work and research. The idea of control, or lack of, and the demands on women, are themes that feature heavily in her work. Currier both celebrates women, and questions stereotypes.
Janet Currier discussed these issue in ‘Coming Out of the Shadow‘.
