The Swan has written and curated an essay entitled Pushing the Pink or The Impossibility of Pink-ness for the latest magazine developed by The Laboratory Arts Collective. DESIRE is the theme of this edition and the essay is tucked in-between and stitched closed. Therefore, in order to enter into pink-ness one has to cut, tear, rip or carefully unpick the shocking pink thread.

STRUMPET & PINK was founded in January 2002 by artists Melanie Probert and Lisa Z Morgan; a capricious idea that began life on the back of a tube ticket........
Melanie Probert (Strumpet)
So the story began and so it continued with laughter, tears, beauty, frustrations and life's blessings and complications for over decade. But the journey, at least this stage here on earth, has now come to an end as the rare woman that was Melanie Probert, the Strumpet in the equation, died on 3rd October 2015.
It is with sadness and disbelief that these words are written. Words, which cannot begin to convey the loss of such a unique and gifted woman. My thoughts go to her wonderful husband with whom she found the happiness and love that she both needed and deserved and to her beautiful daughter with gorgeous new life in her arms.
My Dear Mel, may your journey be filled with all of the wild flowers, beauty and wonder that you sought and please continue with your custom of wearing inappropriate garments in inappropriate places. And most importantly smile that expansive smile and laugh your very particularly dirty laugh all of the way.
