Lineage 61cm (w) x 91cm (h) paint on canvas

Here is another recent painting. It is a self portrait (not a very flattering one, but then that is not what self portraits are about!). It is called Lineage, the painting is about heritage, ancestry, what gets passed down to us and what shapes us. My dreads look like tree branches so I created a 'family tree' / 'tree of life' with the layout of my hair. The splashes of colour represent different elements being passed down, the things that impact / shape us and the results. The turquoise represents bitter sweet elements and the yellow represents positive elements, such as love, joy and faith.

The WhatIsItToBeHuman year long touring exhibition is drawing to an end. They calculate over 10,000 people have visited the exhibition which is great. I am really pleased to have had 'Retrospective Sisterhood' selected for the exhibition and the organisers have been fantastic.
The exhibition from the WhatIsItToBeHuman website.
This is an old London exhibition advertising image - I think it is pretty clever (and fun),
I am on the right, under the painted man's feet.
