The murder of Sarah Everard and the Me Too movement are among the inspirations for a Salford art exhibition called “Fight The Moon”.

The exhibition at Paradise Works, which opened on November 20, runs on Saturdays until December 18 featuring10 works by Katie Tomlinson.

This is the first solo exhibition for Tomlinson, 25, from Teesside, who graduated from Manchester School of Art in 2018.

Tomlinson, who is now studying an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art in London, was inspired by the ideologies involving power structures associated with patriarchy and feminism.

She said: “The work is very much rooted in like political and social issues but then it’s also deep in narrative and symbolism and the surreal.”
