About the work
Untitled study (morning light through the curtain) belongs to a series of batik works that were made over 2020 whilst thinking about incarceration and the impact this has on mental health. The work was made following my project at the Drawing Room, which worked with a group of women to explore batik as a process of resistance and revelation, alongside green screen film and conversation.
