1ST PRIZE WINNER
SURFACE Gallery, Nottingham - 2019 Contemporary Colour Art Prize.
Began in 2013 and completed 2019. Exploring concepts of identity, colour and difference; I love the quirkiness of chameleons and their ability to blend in and/or stand out in their surroundings – both for survival from predators and to attract/warn others. I hand rolled approx. 20,000 balls from tissue paper, my body functioning on auto, whilst my mind and emotions were free to journey elsewhere.
