A new series of paintings and drawings by Amy Shuckburgh explores intimate moments of motherhood, capturing the serenity, exhaustion, stresses and pleasures. Her works, in oil and pastel, evoke the private world of mother and child - exploring the everyday physical and emotional demands of motherhood. Her work challenges the traditional male gaze, with images that are not idealistic or heroic but raw and truthful.
