It has been substantially documented that cancer will touch one in three of us. Warriors One in Three acknowledges the stoic bravery, dignity and resilience of people that have faced serious illness. Through this exhibition the victim becomes the warrior by addressing perceptions of conflicting cultural projections played out through society.
Graham's practice is a trajectory of self-reflection, personal narrative and memoirs where the viewer completes the experience. Handmade process is essential to the practice. The traditional mediums of drawing, fine print and collage are key to generating the intricate visual representation that penetrates the memory of the observer creating unconscious and organic emotional reactions.
