This is one of thirteen artworks in the series Skirts by Linda Brescia, developed during a community engagement program with women from Kingswood, in Sydney's western suburbs. Each subject was asked to select a piece of fabric to either represent or conceal their identity. With the fabric selected, the women were asked to lay down on the fabric while the artist traced their figure. The result is a series of deeply personal portraits, that enshrine women from our local community in the revered space of the gallery, both physically and now online.
