Poor Mother (Luce Stewart)
14 x 21 cm
pen on paper
'Behave' is a pen drawing, inspired by the lived experience of disability. Marrying tenderness and danger in surreal matrimony, they are both viscerally present and distant.

Poor Mother (b. 1998) (they/them) is a non-binary wrriter and multidisciplinary artist, working in London. They recently graduated from The Slade School of Fine Art.Veiling personal realities under external fantasies is a common thread woven into Poor Mother’s work. Their writing occupies a liminal cross-section of autobiographical fiction and poetic prose, outwardly throwing focus from context to content, then back again. Oxymoronic combinations continue to surface throughout: humorous distress, surreal relatability, cold eroticisms and heartfelt discomfort reign free. They have exhibited work at Wusan Art Museum, The Crypt St Pancras, Tramshed Woolwich, The Bloomsbury Theatre and The Bluecoat, Liverpool.
