The images here form part of a body of work looking at self-representation in women's art, particularly where negotiated through subjectively-situated narratives of trauma. This was the basis for my paper at the 'water-ways' Symposium, University of Plymouth in June 2021, which explored how bodies—human and non-human—are inscribed and transformed by events or actions that often leave a mark. In this overview I highlight experimental studio work, engagements with old family photographs, and my 'diffractive' (Barad, 2007) methodological approach.
