2015, Mixed Media, 20.3cm x 20.3cm (Series of 3)

A deconstruction of the idiomatic expression “wearing many hats”, this body of work explores the notion of having different roles to play.

A mother.

A wife.

A daughter.

A friend.

A teacher.

A colleague.

And who?

Themes from these roles are combined into collages that feature mundane domestic objects being whitewashed, juxtaposed with whimsical objects, and embellished with stencilled text. The whitewash establishes a dream-like surreal quality, suggesting notions of absence and nostalgia, and formally unifying the disparate objects in each frame. The texts provide clues to the content and interpretation.
