The idea for “GRAVITY” occurred to me after the Eggoism exhibition. Love has many different forms: lost love, puppy love, unconditional or unrequited. I think of love as a kind of sweet responsibility. What I wanted to portray in the “GRAVITY” series is the pressure of being in love. My aim is to make the audience feel this pressure. The subject of series work 2 is a rock, this comes from a nightmare I had as a child. In the nightmare I saw the rock and was told I had to swallow it. I would wake wet with tears and sweat from the pressure. In choosing this project I also challenged myself to create my most detailed work on the largest canvas I have yet attempted, within a limited time.
