"Redman collapsed the mother/artist dichotomy, making the experience of motherhood a vital part of her creative process, as well as presented an alternative to the patriarchal tradition of representing motherhood as a symbol by creating autobiographical images that focused on her own personal and lived experience...these early motherhood works were intended as a form of empowerment, as visual statements on the possibility of being both mother and artist."
-- Michelle Vangen, Bridging the Artist/Mother Divide: The Maternal Imagery of Helen Redman, 2009
