Inside: a small, frightened, bound self, unable to speak or move, hidden; a scold's bridle and a chastity belt among the horrific devices chaining her life force shut.

Outside: a large wild-speaking woman of earth who has flowers blossoming in her hair. Her green speech winds out freely into the world and in her hands she holds an ancestor-figure of holy-mother-life.

How these two selves are connected will be stories for you and me, for us all, not necessarily the same story each time.

Watercolour and pen.

Printed on 100% recycled 285gsm (card weight) parchment-coloured Context Birch paper. A beautiful quality warm and earthy print. The paper has very fine inclusions in it, giving it a handmade feel.

On the back is printed the title and details of the image.

The last picture shows you the image most clearly, though the actual paper background is cream/off-white which gives the image an added warmth, as you can see in the first photos.

UNBOUND is available in two sizes: A4 (11.7" x 8.27") and 7" x 5"

It will come packed carefully in a cornstarch sleeve and a sturdy envelope. 

There are many other prints in this series in two sizes.
