HALO TANGO (2021)

This work forms a loosely woven fictional narrative around a female protagonist that is depicted in a small hand-drawn​ portrait.

 

‘Mrs Eyles’, a woman drawn in charcoal by another woman Betty Steer in 1962. The charity-shop portrait bookends this story.

The work started a few years ago against the backdrop of the 'Me Too' stories circulating across the media and between friends. This portrait began to intrigue me. I imagined the life of this woman, a kind of 'everywoman' in and around 1962, through the feminist movement and now.
