A solo exhibition by Jen Donnery, comprising ceramic sculpture, drawing and painting, MATER MATERIA questions the persistent belief that a “good” artist must be entirely devoted to their practice; that a “good” mother must give herself to the act of raising her children, and that one role excludes the other.
The intention of this body of work is to evoke empathy around the challenges of maintaining an artistic practice and sense of identity within the context of motherhood.
“The human body has been a source of inspiration for artists throughout the ages for a reason. We identify with the stories it can tell. Motherhood is ubiquitous and yet often overlooked, therefore as a significant part of my identity, it has become my focus.
