This unique collaboration reveals the essential but largely unseen components of disease.  It is further inspired by the work of polymath Leonardo da Vinci who died in 1519 and his many talents included drawing, anatomy and map making (cartography).

Women: a Cartography also reflects the artists’ personal experiences as women as they map both their physical and emotional journeys against a background of life events.   Rachel and Maggie explore a variety of media and use a range of techniques and materials old and new.  These include drawings inspired by da Vinci, print and stitch, collage, assemblage, text, digital photography and film.

As part of its development, Rachel and Maggie have worked closely with pathology centres at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead and University Hospital of North Tees, Stockton.
