oil, charcoal and acrylic on canvas

h: 120 w: 140 d: 4 (cms).

The Painting, from the Artist’s series “The great divide“ explores Parr’s experience of being female and hence stereotyped by society as being feminine, and the conflicts and questions often raised by this, as always with her painting, expressed through abstracted scape and form.

“Me quo que”, “Me too” in Latin. The purpose of using the Latin form references the very long history of inequality and abuse leading to the "Me Too" movement which aims to empower women through empathy and strength in numbers, especially young and vulnerable women, by visibly demonstrating how many women have survived sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace.
