|The distinguishing feature of my artwork is a fascination with texture.
This grows out a devotion to touch, a touch that can be physical, emotional
and/or intellectual. Each of these may be experienced in a
reclusive relationship with self or in the social relationships with others,
but central to these is a decisive connection to space/location which is
best described as a sense of 'homeness'
Reflecting on Judy Chicago's (and co-artists) defense of 'women's art'
and Louise Nevelson's archeology of a 'lost domesticity' I create these
kitchen icons to honour those that have used the different elements ( and to
liink them with each other through the constructions ), celebrate the role
women have traditionally occupied as 'makers of home' and to beautify and
spiritualize what I consider to be the centre of the centre - the kitchen.
