About the postcard artwork
Making work for International Womens Day is a great honour and a subject close to the heart of Tamsin Morse's work. Having taken a ten year break from her studio to raise children and finding her circumstances and options greatly reduced due to her motherhood, once she returned to the studio she felt compelled to bring her experience to the canvas. Her work explores themes of female judgement and expectations, of human insecurities, growing up, relationships, motherhood and recently during the Pandemic, paintings about touch and human need, which many of us are currently living without. The ink drawings submitted on the postcard are from a motherhood series along these themes. Drawing is integral to her work which often results in large canvases. The ink drawings or paintings bridge the gap between pencil and fluidity of paint and becoming a staple of her portfolio.
