"THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN WHO LIVED IN A SHOE"
Installation, 2m x 2m x 40 cm
Shoe, footstool, enamel paint, stencilled lettering
My piece entitled "THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN WHO LIVED IN A SHOE" re-presents
this traditional nursery rhyme. The artwork combines the text of the rhyme
with the physical reality of a woman's shoe. This is not a cartoon, 3-storey
hobnailed boot replete with roof, door & windows! The sad reality of this
nursery rhyme is that the woman's home is the shoe on her foot, which reveals
much about her situation.
