‘I like poems that come from inside, and so more honesty, more truth, more vulnerability.’
Adoabi Tricia Nwaubani
Employing a diaristic and meditative approach, I work with textiles and direct processes, which include drawing, sewing and assemblage, to produce tactile, handmade constructions.
My work addresses personal experience through abstraction, in particular mental health, recovery from domestic abuse and motherhood. I am interested in the ways it is possible to reassert one’s sense of selfdom through creative expression during and following times of personal illness, stress or crisis.
