Shadowed by the Theatre of Life by Meredith Macleod is a reflective consideration of the loss of identity as one ages.
Annoying as it is to be over looked, over corrected or ignored due to one’s age and gender, it can on the other hand allow one to drift in and out of life’s dramatic theatre unnoticed. This in itself can provide an immense sense of freedom. I may be vanishing… my shadow is not. I am now a silent observer in the emotional game of life.

This artwork is made up of 15 framed etchings.

Finalist: Burnie Print Prize 2023
