About the artwork:

'Spear Heads’ is a sculptural installation consisting of many spears, with each one representing a strong female figure. They stand together, celebrating the power of women from all backgrounds, through the body of spear-like totems. The women celebrated are the fashion designer and activist Vivienne Westwood, the physicist Marie Curie, the artist’s sister Amy Williams, Lynne Featherstone MP and the artist's grandmother. 

Each spear has been garnished with symbols relating to the qualities and achievements of the individual. The 'decoration' makes the weapon redundant - as it would be a clumsy tool to use - and instead stands as a symbol of peace. However, their totem-like form, and empowering height of 7ft, highlights how the strength and power in women can be married with their intrinsic femininity. In our modern world the two can stand strong in unison devoid of the traditional stereotypes of what a woman is or who they should be.

'Spear Heads' was commissioned by Elle Magazine for their feminism issue and campaign.

"Before Subject Matter I would never have thought about being an
art-buyer. It felt like a world I didn't understand and didn't belong
in. You have opened my eyes!"
