Pictures on Pink Paper

In Lis Rhodes' closely textured work, pictures and meanings are experimented with, brought richly together or pared down to abstraction in order to challenge and re-create.

She shows us how the apparent inevitability of 'the natural' and immutability of 'the normal' are held neatly in place by those to whom such an order is of advantage. Pictures on Pink Paper is - women talking, thinking aloud and questioning this order; a critique of past experiences and ways of thinking, interwoven with the images and sounds from places remembered. There are numerous threads and layers, of possibilities and contradictions, as the film moves between what is heard and what might be spoken; was known and is now seen.
