Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
This series of playful paintings see vagina dentata flowers loll from highly patterned archways. In the world inhabited by these hybrid creatures' architecture becomes bodily: doorways transforming into fishnet clad knees that grow eyes and are eaten. Misplaced eyeballs observe the scene, floating serenely in a sea of vibrant colour.
