Associate Professor Jody Hewgill was commissioned to create a portrait of visionary scientist Rosalind Franklin for a TIME magazine cover, for the “100 Women of the Year” project. Rosalind Franklin was a molecular biologist and crystallographer who generated a key X-ray image that provided evidence of the double-helix structure of the DNA molecules.

The project mission was to spotlight influential women who have been so often overshadowed by history. To recognize these women, Time embarked on a historical project: selecting a woman or group to represent each year from 1920 to 2019, and then creating a TIME cover for them. Each cover is visually emblematic of the period its subject represents. In all, 49 artists were commissioned to create original portraits.

As TIME executive editor & editorial director of 100 Women of the Year Project Kelly Conniff writes “The feminist movement is always about progress, and acknowledging the role of women in history is as much about looking ahead as it is about re-examining the past”

Congratulations Jody!

Statement:
The other.
The divide.

Building walls, actual, or cerebral to contain, preserve and protect. Whether they are deliberate or an unintentional outcome they require a whole to be split, a division to be determined.  Disassociation is created. To keep something out you keep something in. Trapped.

The work examines the sensation of disassociation, unfamiliarity and the related qualities of distrust and fear - but also the allure of what was once known and the mysteries it contains.  The work expresses the moment that is the opportunity to cross the divide hanging on the decision that needs to be made.

Alongside this idea is the presentation of the frail and failing old guard – established Western, colonial canons of power, authority and perceived ideals – struggling to maintain a tenuous persistence within the shadow of their inexorable demise. They are trapped and held hostage by the very nature of their philosophy.

Although fuelled by geo-political events, the work references the individual experience.  Divisions and philosophical entrenchment are presently occurring like I have not been aware of before within my own lifetime.  Likewise, a significant push for change and confrontation of what, until recently, has been viewed as inalterable, is occurring.

The content embraces the duality of the divide, the idealized and the unknown and the inevitability of change that looms larger than either. The installation is a response to the dichotomy - both the fear and the hope.
