Tea for Two (2018)
Tea for Two (2018)

Marino wool, corrie wool, silk, 42 cm x 37 cm x 20cm. Australians across the country host Australia’s biggest morning tea each year in an attempt to raise funds and awareness for the necessity of cancer research. Tea for Two is a play on this event, using the female anatomy to highlight ovarian, cervical and uterine cancers as some of the potential issues faced by woman throughout the world.

Cruor (2018)
Cruor (2018)

Marino wool, corrie wool, silk, wire, synthetic fibres. 60cm x 32cm x 10cm. The human body is filled with tiny vessels that carry life throughout the body. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrition, white blood cells protect and heal and platelets contain a leakage when damage is incurred. Without this tiny highway of activity, life cannot exist.

Carne (2018)

Marino wool, Corrie wool, Silk, embellishments. 80cm x 25cm x 25cm. One in eight women will face the dreaded battle with breast cancer. Surgery to remove the breast is common practice and one that can be physically and psychologically devastating. The breasts are hanging together like cured meat representing the butchering of the body in order to save the life of the woman.

Metastasis (2018)

bisque fired clay, cactus, succulents, stones, 1200cm x 28 cm x 22 cm The vulnerability of the body is evident by the fragmented female form. Her inner being exposed to reveal internal conflict and multiplicity of disease represented by the multiple cacti and bed of stones. Stricken with illness, lying still as a war rages inside between the aggression of disease and the desperate attempt at revival by the immune system.

Twenty Four Weeks (2014)
Twenty Four Weeks (2014)

Ceramics, wool, resin. 25m x 35cm x 15cm. At 24 weeks the unborn fetus is about 30 cm long and fully developed. In some states of Australia a child can still be aborted at this age, unplugged as if she were a convenience product.  At 25 weeks a child born prematurely can survive, their tiny bodies attached by tubes and wires to monitor their progress. A fine line either way.

219 Hope to Prosper
219 Hope to Prosper

Marino, goat, alpaca, poodle and schnauzer wool/fur, 35cm x 35cm x 35cm. There have been many introduced animal species that have helped Australia prosper, however, the introduction of some species has caused wide spread environment havoc. All introduced animals have forced the native species to coexist and share their resources. Whilst we cannot change the impact felt by the Australian environment we can acknowledge it and continue to kerb it. We are forever bound to the actions of the past.
