'Habitats; Love & Light'

Risograph//Edition of 15//Cyclus Offset 170gsm

This design was conceived after a visit to Manchester Art Gallery to see the Annie Swynnerton exhibition as part of the centenary celebrating the right to vote for women in 1918. I fell in love with the plainly displayed quote pasted above one of her paintings and it made me consider the lack of female voices quoted in all those proudly Mancunian themed, 'in yer face' artworks & graphics you see in the local pub or being snapped up by tourists in town. Why always Morrissey // Gallagher? Hopefully this piece is a nod to the life of the first elected female member (since the late 1700’s) of the Royal Academy of Arts, and celebrates the love, light & hope of her work.
