"'Night, Mother", Poster for Soulpepper Theatre
Acrylic and oil-based ink on bark paper. 15" x 15"
'Night Mother is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Drama Desk, and Four Tony Awards, and deals with the difficult relationship between a mother and daughter. It takes place during one sitting as the mother and daughter discuss their life, the mother knits, and the daughter threatens suicide. I wanted to work with a red knitting thread in some way to hint at the idea of the family's complicated and violent story unraveling before the audience.
