Filomena, like the Lady in the Unicorn tapestries, is obsessed with the senses. If her drawings could release scent - they would be a perfumers delight - not quiet smells but a cacophony of sound. And if you could lick them the slippery sensation would cover the tongue and tickle its way down your throat. But for now, she is making drawings that want to be stroked. Furry plant forms that confuse the visual and evoke the need to touch.
