The bird & the biopsy

By Amabel Mortimer


“In this painting I now have short hair. The painting is a direct refection of the Sentinel Node Biopsy. I felt scared and robbed and ‘done to’,  hence the clinical whiteness of it. The blue tit is also a direct reference to the blue dye in my boob, but also the blue tit as a bird represents hope & new beginnings in totem beliefs”
