Art Description

Installation: Metal, Plastic, Paper, Photo on Paper, Plastic, Steel.

My work often has two layers, a decorative outer layer and an obscured inner layer containing the narrative. The sequins, mirrored discs and photomontage of this work interacts with thermal currents in the air making the fragile materials kinetic to lightly reveal the layer beneath. The enduring theme of Madonna and child is re-packaged in the form of a notorious mother and child abuse case, with the result that this mother and child are fragmented and isolated. As the viewer looks closer at the identity of the mother and child, they become implicated as they see their own face reflected in the mirrors.
