Angie Dishington – Portrait of my Mother – 2009

This piece of work developed over a number of weeks during which the artist was exploring the memories she had of her mother who died when Dishington was only 7 years old.  She made a large number of painted interventions during this time but the traces are all that remain.   The process of removal employed here by the artist is very interesting.. the absence of the subject is beautifully expressed.
