The Roman God Janus is frequently depicted with two faces, one looking forward to the future and one back to the past. In this work I explore that duality, as my awareness begins to focus on getting older and finding myself at a point of transition and shift.
As women we inhabit different roles throughout our lives, worker, spouse, mother, sister, friend. With Janus Rising, I consider a different future and identity. Each image is an exploration of time’s passing, exploring the interplay between fragility and strength and the resilience of self. I am looking at what comes next, whilst processing what I must surrender, intent not on retreating, but on laying claim to a new beginning.
