Witch by Nina Lipscombe

Exhibition and Shows

15 Mar 2019 to 1 Apr 2019

Inspired by witches and the witch hunts, particularly in Salem and the women behind the sinister stories of the past, this exhibition by Nina Lipscombe showcases some of the modern day ‘witches’ she knows – young and old – in order to summon up dialogue around these powerful women and what it really means to be a witch.

For this body of work, Nina has taken photographic portraits of local women, ranging in age from eight to eighty, and used her painting background to transform the portraits into magic realism photo essays about the essence of womanhood.

Nina has used her love of nature and fantasy, and the history of the witch trials, and combined them to make a comment on the abiding way society views women who live in harmony with nature as a threat. Her photos are a celebration of the power of women, nature and sisterhood.
