Nursing Ridley — Gravid series, Jennifer Linton.
2006. Coloured pencil, thread and ink on mylar. 44" x 49".
"...Gravid continues my diaristic approach to image-making with an exploration of pregnancy & motherhood. As my role as primary caregiver to my child develops and evolves, so too does the content of my work to reflect the many corollary issues relating to motherhood, including gender identity, sexuality and body image. My aim is to present an honest and unsentimentalized view of motherhood that challenges the clichéd images often found in the mainstream media."
