Family 2002

Photo - Family 2002Family, a series in white form, continues an earler theme of material used to embody emotions and experiences within the family unit. The aim is to present pieces which are aesthetically pleasing to the viewer, yet also provide some depth and meaning.

Once more, wool is intended to represent warmth, softness, caring and love, whilst the delicate petals of a flower illustrate growth and nurture. Each piece is named simply according to the materials used and it is ultimately left to the viewer to provide the meanings most appropriate to themselves.
