Invisibility is a Super Power


Trapezium Gallery is pleased to present Invisibility is a Super Power, an exhibition by three local artists from Block Steady Studios: Vic Cruz, Helena Flood and Ruth Fettis. The artwork on show is the result of workshops the group held with older women from the local community.

The artists, Ruth, Vic and Helena say: “We are three grandmothers who wanted to explore the subject of ageing and invisibility. The artwork displayed was completed in twenty days and is dedicated to all the amazing older women we worked with who showed their lives to be colourful, interesting and extremely valuable.”

The exhibition is a response to the conversations they had with women over 50 who came to six drop-in workshops held at Oastler Market in Bradford City Centre. They heard stories, made art, swapped advice and recipes, laughed a lot and listened to their concerns and the positive things in the women’s lives today. The artwork celebrates the wisdom, experience, knowledge and strength of older women.

Pauline Cooke from Trapezium says “This is a real departure for us. The show consists of wall-size collaged figures, bright and surreal, which look great in our gallery space. It also relates to the subject of getting older, which affects us all.”
