Ink and coloured pencil on cartridge - 2022

(Isle of Wight, Bath)


‘Women are more often represented in art than men, despite the gender of the artist. Perhaps, it’s easier to admire a greater breadth of aesthetic female qualities or to appreciate these in an uncomplicated, objective way. The blue-toned women in the upper part of this drawing are a family member, a young woman in a restaurant and a figure in a painting in the Bath Priory – none meet the viewer’s gaze. The women in masks seem to stare with concentration but their faces cannot be seen, which makes them seem challenging: these two from a painting by my mother, Alice McIntosh. There are also more secret partial faces. Other imagery - horse, glasses, patterned ceramic, a boat’s prow with ‘Boulogne’ written across it, the words ‘je t’aime’, architectural details and shell – are to be found in my parents’ island home or seen during a trip to Bath.’

Je t’aime, je t’adore
