​"Requiem" by Ruth Sumner

This last year has brought massive upheaval and grief into my life and permanently changed the shape and colour of my everyday existence.

Over this time my husband and I have sold and bought homes, dealt with broken bones, house renovations, pneumonia and the deaths of my Father and both of our Mothers.

This last was, of course, the hardest trauma to deal with and as my own Mother died during the first week of lockdown grieving for her was caught up in the limbo that all of Aotearoa experienced during this extraordinary period of our shared history.

This body of work celebrates and mourns my Mother and serves as my visual eulogy for her life, it’s trials, challenges and triumphs.

Mum was an extraordinary woman who overcame much that would have defeated others born into her circumstances and I am grateful that she was my Mother.

Florence Constance Edge (nee Morton) 9/4/1929 - 4/4/2020
