"Sorry Rita, this is an issue of life" is part of The Talking Collages Series 2020-2021. This work is a response to broken promises "Britain made to the poorest women in the world". I was drawn to a newspaper story "Sorry Rita...." the neglect and loneliness of older people but we know this is not only an age related neglect. As an older woman I wanted to give voice to the stigma of poverty and isolation Britain does not want to acknowledge. The words in the newspaper made this work. I tried to bring the message together by providing decorative motifs.

Please visit me on : www.mariannesturtridge.com I am an art teacher by profession and enjoy the constant challenges of "problem solving" and frustration that goes with art. Teaching art has encouraged me to experiment with new approaches and draw from a history of art knowledge. My paintings seek to convey a range of human feelings from community to alienation, sometimes with a religious, mythological or fantasy theme. While teaching children with physical disabilities I explored themes on attitudes towards disability, illness and censorship. The foundation of my work is drawing, often evolving into mixed media. My painting style ranges from traditional oil and watercolour painting to experimental work in a wide range of materials including computer-based art, bas-relief and ceramics. Alongside painting I have made clay sculptures including torsos and shoes. I use my life drawings as a starting point when making clay torsos and try to capture something of the person in this work.
