CORALLINE AND OTHER THINGS
Coralline and Other Things is a body of work in response to Stonework (2016-ongoing), which is a response to Escape Theory (2015-ongoing); a nesting doll of projects all based on notions of escapism, the female artist, gender roles, and mental health. In Stonework, the stones are provided by my partner from business trips and are symbolic of his freedom. They are returned to me in the isolation of the domestic space where they metamorphose into signifiers of grounding myself in their places of origin. In Coralline and Other Things, I went to a beautiful place and collected the rocks and things myself, before picking them out one-by-one, making each thing individual and important.
