Chi Em Series 2003

This Little Sister series explores the child represented as fragile floating images suspended in dreamlike pastel fields, creating a symbolic play between figure and ground. The child form often appears to simultaneously push out of the image and yet remain anchored or pulled back into a ‘context’ bereft of any social or architectural inscription. This sense of ambiguity is important as it offsets the lyrical notions of the child figures with a sense of mystery.
