ARTIST STATEMENT

With painting and sculpture, you cannot deny that you are in a relationship with a predominantly white male art history and it's a tightrope walk between recognizing that history whilst aiming for free and strong expression as an independent artist and a woman. With that in mind, I am interested in the notion of a non-hierarchical aesthetic - in other words challenging what is traditionally viewed as kitsch, tasteless or taboo with regard to colour and subject matter. This relates directly to social class as well as gender stereotype.

As a feminist, it feels dangerous to paint/make from a free female perspective the female form and experience - sexuality, motherhood, relationships, emotion, health and so on, that at once celebrates it, whilst simultaneously tackling the negative, the dark side of womens' life in a patriarchal society.
