On display are ink drawings, acrylic paintings and metal shadow sculptures that explore the mythologies of the artist’s mind. The artworks have been created as a response to the personal, political, social and ecological anxieties of the day and through them, the artist attempts to restore balance to human relationships with each other and Nature. Her subjects – some quite human, some quite animal, but none clearly one or the other – fight and ponder, observe and converse, love and luxuriate, often within labyrinthine physical spaces.
In the artist’s world, bodies are freed from the idea of obscenity. They are instead perfect vessels for exploration, action and sexual emancipation. The metal sculptures, an extension of her drawing practice, give us fleeting entry into their domain. The flickering shadows they cast present an intimate and unfettered Elysian mirror world that one can see but never quite reach.
