I thought about it a lot before choosing this object. A lot of the women we work with have the posture of this woman. Emotions I could connect with. I could relate to what I could see in her that women feel when they are exhausted and have had enough. A woman who has come to a point where she has sat down and said enough.
This painting was one of two objects chosen for a Collections chat between staff, volunteers and members of Women's Voices, a not-for-profit organisation supporting vulnerable women from diverse backgrounds.
