Most of Korea’s traditional tales begin with “When tigers smoked pipes,” an seemingly odd expression that became the Asian version of “Once upon a time.” In a time when tigers smoked was also a time of myth and legend where anything was possible. I love this idea of an image to signify the suspension of disbelief. Tigers and cats are familiar motifs in Asia and I wanted to incorporate this idea and image in a modern way into my own work. I wanted to pare back and use simple materials and colours. At the moment I am also fascinated by 'Baker-Miller Pink' and wanted to use pink and this related colour palette in my work.
