The belittlement of my work is painful whether from jovial mocking masking a deliberate, hurtful lack of a desire to engage and understand or the cold rejection of some drawings submitted to (yet another ) ‘Open’ exhibition. Yet this has been in stark contrast this week to having the very interesting and flattering experience of being filmed for a project by my daughter who is a student at NFTS.
Talking through my making, funny furry microphone just in eye shot, whilst stitching up , tucking in, pulling tight, dunking under,hanging up, drying out, pin popping and plucking, my work became a Grand Dame ,a Diva, a Celebrity.
She got her moment in the spotlight, albeit just for the day…and did she enjoy it? Oh rather….!!!!
