Artist Statement


The Rabbit and Her Blanket is constructed of a single duvet cover with an extended leg and ear. This is her escaping the boundaries of the frame; this character is stretching beyond the painting she is in and into the gallery space, placing a toe on our floor. I wanted her to take up as much space as I do in the world, and I felt the single duvet was the appropriate size.

Ideas of safety and comfort are important to my practice, so I choose familiar bedding and animals so that the viewer has a sense of familiarity with my work, despite not having seen it before. To reinforce the concept of comfort I have also filled the cover with a duvet so that it possesses a physical softness.
