My recent work has been an exploration into found objects of my everyday life.
From my son’s plastic toy textures to the Victorian wallpaper that featured in the home I grew up in the 1970s. The woodblock shapes of the foreground are futuristic Samoan fale (houses) that I have been exploring in printmaking for the last 20 years. These have been metaphors for my identity of mixed New Zealand European / Samoan heritage. The figure is the architect of shapes, trying to bring balance to a chaotic world and derive meaning from my memories.
