Women Artists at Home
Women Artists at Home - Written by Laura Moseley - Featuring 13 Contemporary Illustrators - In Aid of Solace Women's Aid #StaySafeAtHome Emergency Appeal.
- This zine explores the relationship between women artists and their homes. It looks at how their homes were connected to their life and their work and how it perhaps inspired or hindered them.
- This was inspired by the photos of artists spaces that I found during the lockdown. I wanted to explore why these were so fascinating, in the same way we visit artists homes and studio spaces, is it a way to understand them further and feel closer to them? But how is this different for women artists, or for queer artists? What do their homes mean to them and to us, as people trying to understand their art?
- This was created during the Covid-19 lockdown to raise money for Solace Women's Aid, a UK charity that supports victims of domestic abuse, a cause close to the heart of all those who helped create it.
- All money raised from the sales will go to Solace.
- The issue features 12 different women artists from history, with accompanying portraits, illustrated by 12 different contemporary illustrators.
