THROUGH A MOTHER'S EYE: LIFELINE WORK OF FEMINIST ARTIST, HELEN REDMAN
APRIL 23, 2015 - MAY 31, 2015
Helen Redman is an internationally exhibited figurative painter, mixed-media artist, and educator. Since the early 1960s, she has been creating, teaching and presenting art from a uniquely female perspective; continuously exploring body image, personal identity, and life cycle experience.
Helen Redman’s series of paintings and drawings on motherhood (1962-2014) is designed to show the magnitude and variety of a prodigious journey to the other side of birth. Spanning six decades of art, each painting is a lifeline that pulls the artist and us through pregnancy, the sudden death of a young child, the birth of two more children and, later, the arrival of three grandchildren.
Motherhood calls us into an ecstatic celebration of life. Through these colorful portraits, Redman serves witness to the continuous creation of what it means to become a human being.
