Dancing with the Black Dog
About the artwork:
Who, in a dog eat dog world, do we value? Through my painting practice I ask the question that I have faced in my work and life. Who is overlooked, swept aside? What happens to those who slip? And what of those who bravely carry a kernel of trauma? There are no monuments to honour their courage who, each day, find strength and hope to persevere. Among them I count "Not Her Real Name" Newcastle artist, woman and friend - Great Black Hound, At your heels, Nipping -twirl him round.You dance Girl!
