The motifs depicted in these works are ubiquitous, from the banal (wallpaper) to the overwhelming and ever present (money). Whilst this may hint at a play off between commodity value and aesthetic value, equally this ubiquity suggests a detachment as well as meaning.
As traces of these motifs compete for attention, an act of camouflage is implied. Surface and depth become closely interwoven and at times threaten to collapse the illusion. There is a sense of tolerated risk.
Technique is explicit (dragged glazes, rough edges) which highlights the act of making, and to an extent, as the nature of this ‘veiled revealing’ takes centre stage, an awareness of the act of looking becomes unavoidable too.
Like traps these works snare a moment of connection, as one sees and another is seen.
