Exhibition Opening event: Thursday 1 July, 6pm-8pm

Storms in My Teacup is an autoethnographic response to the world and time in which we live. Mundane routines and rituals of daily living are documented alongside the more unpredictable global current affairs as reported in the media. These two influences are binary opposites which the artist responds to or manipulates in order to fabricate alternate stories through paint and mixed media.

Mapping the everyday creates ‘mindscapes’, allowing reflection on the past and the immediate issues of life. Connections to place, time, and personal history presents a crossing over, and weaving of space and time. The work is multi-layered, a fragmentation of transfer prints taken from private archives and appropriated from magazines and the internet, revealing the messiness of life. Mixed media leaves traces that occur through pentimento and reworking. Veiling and erasure stems from the materiality of the making process, pushing the idea of weaving time and history and providing a means to meditate on the world and reflect on the issues of daily life.
