New exhibition Embodying the Mother-Artist Model opened at USQ Artworx on Tuesday 5 February. The exhibition brings together six contemporary female visual artists who have made work from motherhood as part of a practice-led research project by USQ Doctor of Creative Arts candidate Linda Clark. Embracing Clark’s Mother-Artist Model, featured artists have responded to their own authentic mother-artist experience, within their shifting and complex mother-child interrelationships, as a sustainable approach to contemporary art practice. Exposing the complexity of being tethered to another through motherhood, the artist’s works create an alternate narrative around birth, caring, communication and child agency. Featuring artists working in regional settings including Linda Clark, Rhi Johnson, Christine Mills-Kelly, Susan Shantz, Alex Stalling and Joanne Stead. The exhibition will run until 27 February.
