When Wise Women Whisper

Artist : Tracey Hewitt
Exhibition dates: 1st August – 30th September 2020
Location: Biloela Hospital, QLD

I’ve been drawing imaginary women for years – ever since I decided anyone calling themselves an artist really
couldn’t claim not to be able to draw a face. These women are imagined, not intended to portray anyone one in
particular, but rather to give life to an idea or a possibility. They always seem to have a look about them suggesting
that if they were to speak, it would be worth listening to. Combining my passion for catching poems with my love for
bringing these characters to life, the poems are an attempt to share the wisdom that looks ready to spoken.

Scanning the QR code beside each poem with your smartphone will take you to a recording I made just for you to listen to the poem being read.
