Bad Luck, And The Albatross

By Poppy Mercedes

Bad Luck, And The Albatross


She deals with the concept of grief and loss, both in a material and metaphorical sense. She examines patterns of life, society’s disregard for the environment and its consequences, drawing attention to issues of consumerism, overproduction, and the depletion of natural resources. The women depicted in the paintings embrace femininity, freedom and wildness. The themes of motherhood and womanhood are rendered in the work. The women, mermaids, selkies and fishermen dwell on the shores, on these ethereal landscapes. Through her work, she calls attention to the interconnectedness of human beings and the natural world, emphasising the truth of existing as part of the natural world rather than separate from it. In harmony with the vision of ecofeminism, she explores the parallels between the oppression of women and the exploitation of nature, seeking to challenge patriarchal systems that perpetuate both forms of exploitation.
