'A place like this?'
'A place like this?' Mary J. questioned herself as to how she found herself having tea with me in the Women's Refuge Centre. The previous night she sat in the car park with her three children and cried for two hours dreading to knock on the center's front door. This body of work endeavors to capture the core significance of this space as both a home and a place of safety and sanctuary. The refuge is a place of calm, where those, who have suffered physical abuse, can allow their bodies to recover and come to terms with the whirlwind of emotions that accompany this invisible abuse. My work is not to examine why, just to observe, and admire.
