Issue 1: Art as Adultery

Can mums make art?


art direction


A JOURNAL FOR WOMEN facing the simultaneous challenges of the artistic life, home and family. The content for this journal was inspired by a recent documentary Lost in Living by American filmmaker Mary Trunk, and the book The Divided Heart: Art and Motherhood by Rachel Power (Australia, 2008, 2015) which both follow the lives of artist-mothers and their various predicaments across the arts.
