I attempt to act as an echo; as a voice that bounces around a space, stemming from my surrounding culture to double and distort it, to come back to the listener in louder or quieter, familiar yet uncanny or surprising ways.
I reflect upon ideals of femininity, desire and taste. I seek out cross-fertilisations between the various worlds of paint, (within Art History and everyday life) where paint acts as masquerade, mimesis and metamorphoses - living bound up with pretence. Objects and images make reference to aspects of daily rituals, drawing out the theatrical potential within domestic spaces or objects. Working across mediums, paper mono-prints allude to folds of fabric while squeezed-out paint metamorphoses into women’s objects (g-strings, wigs etc), leaving paint sagging, hanging limply or stiffly sculpted.
Hopefully in the end I’ll leave you listening to my comically disembodied voice.
