Artist's Statement as a Finalist in the 2015 Sulman Prize at the AGNSW: She left us at Ikea and went off to find Herself.
At Ikea there is a room filled with colourful balls where children can be left whilst you browse the heady delights of affordable groovy homewares.
I have never done this, but I know plenty of mothers who have, but I dont judge...
Nevertheless, I too am guilty of craving me-time - even a nag-free trip to the shops. Equally, Im not ashamed to admit my yearning for those days when home was a panacea to my busy life, a haven to sink back into (complete with neo-retro design and tangerine detailing).
And so to the ball-room my cherubs, so mummy may dream of a world that is calm, organised, and unsullied by hardened breakfast cereals.
