The Dames series is a succession of mysterious, glamorous, yet somewhat dishevelled ladies.
As the series progressed, attributes emerged including enhanced commentary about character. Dames – Women With Stories, my first solo exhibition, expresses how events, encounters and experiences – the good, the bad and the boring – shape how we think, what we feel and say.
This body of work was created during the pandemic and BC wildfires, and the series was in its final stages as flooding occurred in many communities across the province. Unknowingly, my responses to these events appeared in the faces of some of the Dames. Other Dames express memories of past experiences and characters.
The Dames were created using a variety of processes including poetry, collage and acrylic painting.
