Fortis Femina

28/03/15 - 16/05/15

Fortis Femina was a solo show of work created by Meg Burkill, a painter based in East Yorkshire.  

The focus for her new paintings was The GB Women's Sprint Kayak Team, which Meg's daughter is a member of and she wanted to explore the idea of strength in female athletes.

"Spending time with the team I found them to be ordinary women who have made themselves into extraordinary women through hard work and determination. Their ability to push themselves to their limits on a daily basis to achieve their goals is inspirational." Meg Burkill (artist)

Megs colourful, bold and contrasting style has been applied to the female form producing imagery that is energising and honest. Meg's aim is to celebrate the impressive physical and mental strength of these young women.
