Mother Never Hurt Me
Polly Hill is a disabled artist and photographer working within the natural landscape. Her work Mother Never Hurt Me focuses on the parallels between the destructive treatment of her own body, stemming from ideologies of beauty and femininity, and the treatment of the natural word by wider society. Hill explores these fractured and fragmented feelings and uses the apparatus of photography to process trauma and healing with reconnecting her body to the earth and its wounds. Primitivism and the Brücke art movement were heavily drawn upon for the work with the aim of bridging the gap of difference in experience between the artist and wider society.
