Invisible/Stranger/Mine (1993)

In 1991 I began graduate studies in the Fine Art department at the University of Saskatchewan. I wanted to review my 10-year practice as an artist as well as continue to investigate representations of pregnancy.

The thesis I developed, Spacemen and Invisible Women, examined popular representations of pregnancy that obliterated the pregnant woman, and represented the fetus (or embryo) as a tiny self-sufficient space traveler, floating in a black void. My 1993 graduating exhibition, Invisible/Stranger/Mine, examined maternal erasure and the cult of fetal personhood within a number of related works.
