Mariasanta Tedesco - Contributing Artist - Hundred Heroines
Commercial guru at the marvellous Blackwell’s Bookshop in Oxford and enthusiastic volunteer at Photo Oxford Festival and Hundred Heroines. I have studied European politics between Italy and France, but I have always loved art to the bones, especially photography and theatre. I have some experience in performing on stage and I am a very passionate self taught photographer, always looking up at the work of great women artists. I have got an obsession with surrealism, Sicily – the place where I come from – , swans, chairs, doorbells, windows, letter boxes and lately white roses.
By Mariasanta Tedesco : In the realm of Surrealist art, women have been especially overshadowed and underrepresented. However, Surrealism – perhaps above all modernist movements – anticipated the second wave feminism of the 1960s.
