This piece is a portrait, it’s been made in response to the model’s resilience to her own life – cancer, divorce, homelessness, menopause, surgery and death. I have used the actual sutures from the operation. The piece is cyanotype printed on silk and then stretched on a rusty metal rim, like a drum. The expression on her face, when facing all that, was so strong that I decided I had to create something to acknowledge her hope.
