‘Summons’ explore a brain tumour operation I underwent in 2016. The series of prints hope to translate a personal insight to my experience, which was prejudiced by the possible risks of memory loss and motor impairment. My mothers’ legacy of imparting the recuperative powers of craft has created a powerful belief in the use of stitch as a metaphor for growth and renewal. I also entrusted to the Goddesses’ of healing, inspired by the medical code of ethics.
‘‘ I swear by Apollo the Healer, by Asclepius, by Hygieia, by Panacea, and by all the Gods and Goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will carry out, according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture.”
