The W Project

I'm really pleased to have been invited by W Project to contribute work to their 2012 show at KK Outlet in London which opens next Thursday 8th March. I'm happy to be showing work alongside fellow ladies Emily Forgot, Ana Montiel, Chrissie Abbott, Sister Arrow, Loren Filis and many more...

My words take the form of a one-off Gocco print and reflect on the nature of the show itself. Here are some work in progress shots until Thursday...

Thanks to No Days Off and Loren Platt for curating the W Project exhibition.

Participants have been asked to express their wise words on a postcard in the medium of their choice – anything from screenprinting and collage to pencil and biro. This collection of mini-artworks will then be displayed side-by-side to form a wall of knowledge, and give visitors to the show a unique snapshot of female creative insight in 2012. We hope that by completing their words of wisdom, contributors may inspire others and add something special to discussions about women in society, their working roles, lives and opportunities.

The exhibition opens with a private view on the 8th of March 2012 at THE KK OUTLET in London. Events taking place alongside the exhibition include a symposium dinner featuring talks by women who have succeeded in their creative field, a film screening and a youth workshop.
