This work has a long history, dating back to a vision from the late 90s in which a menstruating woman gave birth to the Milky Way. In 2012, I reimagined this image for an exhibition in Germany as the artwork She Is In My Blood She Is In My Shining Blood, and during the process of creating that work, I produced a sketch in a longform format, but which I rejected in favour of a different arrangement.

This artwork is the realisation of that initial sketch, and one which thematically and visually goes back to the very formative inspirations - inner visions, Huichol yarn paintings, wild mythical imaginings - of my arts practice. Rather than narrate it in detail, I leave it for the viewer to explore their own creative mythical interpretations.
