Seeing Shadow

For Seeing Shadow, I traced my body and created a pattern that I then knitted in jute. Like Peter Pan who lost his shadow and had to have it sewn back on, I suffer from a reluctance to grow up. Knitting my own shadow was a way of honoring myself as a child.

From Exhibiting You:

This series of paintings is based on my relationship with my younger sister. We have grown up together, then grown apart, then grown back together again, stronger than before. Throughout the years, we have developed a deep friendship and enjoy many shared memories.

From Exhibiting You:

Step into the crowded Dar Taliba, a girls' dormitory in rural Morocco. Photographer Amy Thompson takes you behind the walls that separate girls from the public space of boys and men. All the photographs are unposed and made with available light on film. Follow along with this slide show and discover a hidden world of reading, prayer, sports, whispers and the universal dramas of adolescent years.
