Published on the occasion of a new exhibition at Victoria Miro, this 80-page artist’s book features Looking for Mother, a new text by writer and critic Olivia Laing, and a selection of works from the past 30 years in addition to the paintings on view.
‘Over the years, a kind of hardening takes place, a process of separation and individuation on both sides. It’s not just that everyone gets older, but rather that time occasions a shift in perspective and visibility too. The mother recedes inch by inch, becoming smaller and harder, emerging as a person with needs and sadnesses in her own right…’
– Olivia Laing
