A series of abstracted portrait paintings focusing on the vulnerability, yet quiet determination and resilience of the homeless women Dorothy Lipmann has come to know through the non-profit organisation Wintringham.
Entering the Subconscious is a series of ink paintings that began at the beginning of COVID-19 in March 2020 and continued during the ongoing lockdowns in Melbourne in the intervening months. These works in sequence chart a journey as time in lockdown progressed.
