"These paintings transfigure the suffragettes into what I would call representative figures, and by ‘figures’ here I don’t mean historical people, I mean emblematic signs. The stylistic unity – abstract orderings, recurrent colours and motifs, stylised figuration, formal configurations (diptych, triptych, flag-like tri-colour, etc) – increases the rhetorical intensity of the suite as a whole, and also emphasis the presentation of the events and characters as not simply historical but symbolic or representative images…"
