“As a painter, I am interested in the way inanimate objects call to us, appealing to our senses and inviting us to appreciate their materiality and particular charms – pattern, colour, texture or story. Unwrap is a series of paintings that play with compositions of ribbons and paper. The ribbons take on an unexpected anthropomorphic quality, revealing human traits as they unfold, unfurl, unravel, and relax”.
