Gwen Hardie - Written on the Body

When we began the photographs which have become All Things Are Always Changing, we saw that the scars we accumulate on our bodies are the documentation of  life's experiences: childbirth, fracture, rupture, disease.  
Gwen Hardie's paintings view flesh intimately,  evoking thoughts of identity and an ancient genetic heritage.



Of her work, Body Tondi, Hardie writes, "The surface of the human body is an amazing membrane. It bears witness to the person living inside; an independent individual and yet closer inspection of the skin reveals that the body is made up of moving elements that are universal and part of the greater natural world."
