Statement about AOAP submitted artwork 

What bits of faces, broken times and places shine through your form? I am interested in the body's relationship with time, place and the ever-shifting sense of self. Can we ever be free from the imprints of our past? What do we leave behind, what do we lose and what do we carry with us as we move through time? The fragments and close-up images of the female body in my work celebrate heightened emotional and bodily presence. Immersed in a moment, feeling, smelling, absorbing and pulsating with its surroundings, it strives to become, if only briefly, free. Anchored by invisible threads of its unique history, it slowly transforms as an eroding coastline or a pebble, cool and shiny, washed by the sea. 

 

You must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any works. In doing so, you endanger our relationships with artists, and directly jeopardise the charitable work we do.
