Not Drowning But Fading

May 29, 2022

The poem and the painting are always displayed together. Indeed, they evolved together. WWS calls the painting a visual interrogation of the poem, which changed as the painting came into being. The anger expressed was born of her body’s failure to perform as it did pre-Parkinson’s, but that anger then moves into the frustrations women face in a society that similarly limits their performance. Then it grows further: “It’s also centered around this whole idea of disabled people. We’re meant to be quiet. We’re meant not to have a voice. It’s about, I suppose, anything in society where people look at you, and you’re the disadvantaged.”
