During the Workshop: An Interview with Sue Kreitzman
Sue Kreitzman is an outsider Artist, Curator and Fashion icon. She will be interviewed during the Workshops about her use of International fabrics in what she wears, her individual fashion journey, and why she chose her painting 'Warrior Mermaid' for this Workshop.
Sue Kreitzman's painting: 'Warrior Mermaid' will be miniaturised and printed onto fabric. You can use it along with colourful African Wax print fabric, to decorate your miniature chair.
Sue Kreitzman will be interviewed as part of each Workshop.
Sue says: "My painting 'Warrior Mermaid' represents women's eternal fight for equal rights. The watermelon shield symbolises the struggle against misogyny and racism. And her sword symbolises a women's strength and determination. My paintings, drawings, and Memory Jugs concern themselves almost entirely with the female landscape. They are all about womanhood with all its joys and sorrows. Mostly the colourful joy and unfettered femaleness of it all, although often there's quite a bit of blood. I borrow Goddesses and other female characters from all religions and mythologies and remake them for my own private mythology. This is unabashed syncretism. An age old practice."
