Vision Statement

The series 'No One came here to hide’ were a natural progression from my investigation of black face and Zwarte piet. The title is actually a quote from the writer and performer Bill Withers.
of ‘I see you - but do you see me…?’
While my initial focus was on capturing certain regard, the juxtaposition of layers allows me to explore the tension and conflicting narratives – the softness and flexibility of the textures contrasting with the uncompromising expressions.
