Clark, Linda and Batorowicz, Beata and Baguley, Margaret (2017) Transforming maternal regionalism through the Mother-Artist Model (MAM). Australian Art Education, 38 (2). pp. 339-353. ISSN 1032-1942

Abstract

As a regional contemporary artist, and also a mother, I have often had to subsume one role over the other depending on the context. My recent tertiary studies have allowed me to explore the critical synergies between the two roles and in the process to propose, develop and refine my Mother-Artist Model (MAM). By blurring art and life, the model draws on mothering attributes of adaptability and resilience and makes visible the complex stories of the mother-child relationship. This paper explores the development of this process and the potential within the MAM to be used as an adaptive creative practice strategy for other women artists to overcome the challenges of maternal periphery through collective sharing and dialogue.
