Julie Oakes: Julie Oakes words: I began working on SheShe seven years ago when a conversation was opened with Christian Bernard Singer, the curator at the Tom Thompson Gallery. Because Tom Thompson’s works had been read within the context of a rugged male perspective, I determined that I would present a female take on the human relationship with mother earth. I decided to move inside, to the shelter of a home within which would be expressed a female sensibility built around family and particularly, the matriarchal line.
