On Wood

This collections explored the iconography of outdoor entertainment, charting the thrills, spills and faded glamour of the circus, fun-fair, and sea-side pier. Again, these works are linked to memories, of jeopardy, excitement, freedom, and discovery. Resulting works are about being caught in the moment, the adventure of risk-taking. Again, this focus relates deeply to the transitional, and she is inspired by surfaces that are marked by movement and displacement. For example, the painted structures of the travelling show, scuffed in transit, building-up an organic painterly history. Again, these are places of mixed emotions, happiness and belonging, pain and displacement, but also of the insider and outsider. In many respects, the paintings explore acts of showmanship, a brave face, and this in-turn links to contemporary conditions, for example, the way we seek validation through social media.
