|Lady Viking, November Cube installation|
The camera is my pencil.
I use the medium of print.
The idea becomes a print and from print perhaps another or an installation.
Printmaking is conducive to the act of multiplication and repetition.
Repetition as discourse, to refine, to demonstrate movement or ritual.
I work in and with the confines and obvious nature of the monochromatic to explore the relationship of words and images to communicate a visual language.
When I was little I loved to watch Dad mow the lawns.
Up and back, up and back.
The smell of the freshly cut greens.
The dappled morning light within which I was sitting, safely, overseeing.
As an adult I enjoy the same task and share it with my partner.
The whipper snipper is my power tool.
My son has three lawn mowers and a whipper of his own and loves to shadow his Dad when he is undertaking the work.
This piece has evolved from my drives around town noticing the many and varied shapes of women who undertake this task.
A role synonymously viewed as being that of the male.
I love to note the shift in sexually specified tasks as we evolve our decades.
Women on the end of mowers and men pushing prams.
