The artist’s drawings are based on actual garments worn by women. “Bomma is a term used within the AIC [African Independent Churches] to refer to women as mothers, motherly figures, role models, but mostly as spiritual figures,” she explains. “In choosing to entitle these images “bomma” I invite the viewer to engage with images as more than depictions of garments” she explains.”
