I have been incorporating text into my work and have been inspired by the artist and feminist Mary Kelly. These pieces are part of Kelly’s 1978 project and Exhibition ‘Post-Partum Document’ which explore and analyse the mother and child relationship. She records the relationship and dialogue (through Lacanian diagrams) between her and her own child athrough his early development whilst she faces the challenges of juggling motherhood (pro-creative role) and her career as an artist (creative role) through the 60’s and 70’s Women’s Movement. Mary Kelly records how emotional and physical motherhood can be. She works onto baby-related items which has influenced me. I work in a slightly different way by recording the period of time before birth.
