I’m fine

2022 Collection

My collection explores the connection between our inner and outer body and mind. Exploring the constructs of emotions from an ‘inside-out’ approach, looking at how to portray what we feel – how we express our emotions from within and how these are represented externally. What forms do they take? What do people see? How are they interpreted? So often the emotions we express bear no relation to our inner feelings. Despite the complexity, when asked, the simple answer is, “I’m fine”. During a period of my own confusion I explored the emotions I felt – translating these in forms of mixed media – metals, wax, wire and leather. The collection links the internal heart meridian connecting the hand, neck and chest in the pieces exhibited.
