Women's work is never done....

by Jane Fairhurst :: You need to be a member to contact artists →Join :: Portfolio

In this freestanding sculptural piece, Knitted, vaguely human female forms are piled, higgledy-piggledy in a museum-type showcase. The knitted shapes are based on Stone-Age ‘Venus figures’ representations of the female form carved from materials such as stone, bone, ivory, wood or ceramic clays. In ‘Women’s work is never done’, some of the knitted figures are purposely incomplete – unfinished stitches and trailing wool representative of the ‘incomplete picture of the role women have played in society'.
