Nasty Women Wigan put on a dazzling show
A short but infinitely sweet show put on by Cross Street Arts to celebrate the diverse and explosive brilliance of women, Nasty Women Wigan featured a hotter than hot selection of artists raising money for two local charities who support women.
Attracting artists who explore aspects of themselves, the female body or wider views on feminism. They chose pieces representing different facets of being a woman from live performance, music, film, collage, textiles, painting, illustration, sculpture and photography.
I was pleased to be a part of this exhibition and specially created a new piece of artwork titled ‘Heart of Thunder’ (below) 2017.

What role does the landscape play in shaping women’s identity? And how do women’s lives become visible across the landscape? Answers multiplied into more questions and I ended up creating a cheeky collage based on the shape (landscape) of the female body incorporating references to popular culture, uplifting slogans, inspiring female role models and less we forget, Trump himself.
