“This series of monotypes, ‘I Am Stardust, I Am Plant’, reflects on the interdependence between all life forms, and the reciprocal relationship we have with our environment and planet. The varying shapes of the prints trace the outlines of windows and mirrors found in my home and studio.” – Tamsin Relly
“Our prisons are full of women who should not be incarcerated but who are in need of help and support through other means. Women in vulnerable positions are less likely to come forward and ask for help for fear of the implications and increased exposure. By addressing women’s needs, some women can avoid getting caught up in the criminal justice system and have their problems addressed in a more appropriate setting. Women with addiction issues are more likely to have hepatitis C. The prevalence of hepatitis C among women in prison is higher than in the male prison cohort. Getting tested and treated is a crucial step in rehabilitating women’s health and lives.” – Art on a Postcard
