Single Breasted Suit

I hope readers had a lovely Easter, I recharged in Devon (but think the bags-under-eyes are now permanent). Whilst there an artist friend of mine recommended this piece from 2001 by Sam Taylor-Wood, entitled Self Portrait in a Single Breasted Suit with Hare.

Originally exhibited in 2002 in the White Cube, it refers to the artist's experience with breast cancer, the single breasted suit alluding to her subsequent mastectomy. There is a new exhibition of her work currently in Australia.
