Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork  

I have submitted four images, two photographs and two alternative prints. The two photographs consist of 'Wait until tomorrow... these touches on young suicide and 'Loo' which is multi-layered about nights out and disposable femininity. The two paintings titled 'Alchemy - O'negative, lemons and gold' and ""Alchemy O'negative, bleach and gold' are about reactions when 2 or more substances come together, it is unpredictable and beautiful. The inspiration came from the acidic relationship I had with my mother.
