Acrylic paint and pencil on antique linen and lace canvas, 2017. 3 pieces from group exhibition, ‘Mysteries’, AreByte Gallery, London.
Human conflict and relationships interpreted as yin yang energy out of balance. Vintage tablecloth canvases locate the dysfunction as that universal symbol of difficult conversation, the dinner party table.
The pieces explore the geometry of human dynamics . Symbols from popular and ancient culture combine to suggest non-verbal signals as a route to common ground.
Vintage tablecloths symbolise those times marked out as special, when both furniture and difficult issues are swept under the table, rather than discussed.
