I RELEASE MY COLOURS is a series of paintings/writings/sculptures exploring ideas of identity, ancestry, encounters with time, space and place, these fabricated constructs contain ruptures and imperfections giving access through the layers and creating new spaces. Disruptions create a shift, cause movement, force innovation; it is time to own ALL that we are. #sensuouspractice                          SEE ME - I AM ANDROGYN , sparking with energy; standing out / receding away; strong assertive woman, if I were a boy...

Growing up I didn't think about gender or colour unless it was pointed out to me. I was told I was a tomboy, taken as a boy/man as much as girl/woman; I loved wearing trouser suits and waistcoats and a Trilby hat; I loved that I was faster, stronger, smarter than nearly all my peers and even many of the older kids. I was constantly  disrupting/crossing/challenging boundaries and ignoring social harmony /order just by being me.

Movement, dissipation and reinvigoration of energy / conflict, challenge and exhilaration, I lost this confident part of me and it's good now to remember and reclaim.
