'Vertigo Warriors' Exhibition by Australian Artist, Jane Tonks 
‘Vertigo’, the fear of falling over the edge, is a metaphor for the devastation you feel when diagnosed with cancer. Imagery of ‘paper-chain’ figures are an icon for the many ‘Warrior Women’ who are going through or have gone through breast cancer, representing many wonderful women I have met along my own journey and the strength and resilience gained through personal, caring networks of family and friends. The paper chain image exhibits qualities of both strength and fragility in equal measure.
