SMS/SMU Deuteronomy 25: 11-12

So Many Silenced, So Many Unnamed

Deuteronomy 25: 11-12 When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets: 12 Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.

As part of So Many Silenced, So Many Unnamed I will also be sharing the work of other feminist artists.

Fiona Dempster, Time for Change

Fiona  is a calligraphic and book artist who loves books, words and paper. Her work is elegant and spare; and seeks the essence of things. I urge you to take a look at Fiona Dempster's great work. 

"Time for Change" is part of "Women." Her artworks quietly draw attention to the issues. 

"In 2014 one Australian woman was killed each week, by a partner or former partner. These women were mothers, daughters, sisters, friends. Each tile has a unique pattern burnt into it, marking them as individuals who have suffered, and uses clock parts to remind us it is time for change."
