Im Waiting For Life To Start
The concept and theory for this exhibition was originally born from the words of Clarissa
Pinkola Estés book; Women who run with the wolves, a piece of literature that speaks of the
instinctual psych of human beings and the feminine nature we all inherently possess.
Looking to embody the ‘ wild woman archetype’ the artist has developed a visual narrative
through ethereal imagery, to reiterate that ‘The earth is the very quintessence of the human
condition.’ - Hannah Arendt.

The artist has drawn inspiration from the Australian wilderness and the female gaze through
an art-based perspective, using the natural elements of light, form and landscape to create
impactful imagery.

Theories such as Ecofeminism EAUBONNE, F. D. (1974) which suggests a correlation between
the exploitation of women in society and exploitation of the earth’s ecology and environment,
have influenced and informed the artists work.
‘ I’ve only twelve days in Paris and I’m waiting for life to start ‘

‘ you a hostage of crazed hormones will be driven to say; I am the next poet laureate
and she is the cherry madonna and all of the summer is hers.’
