This artwork is part of a series entitled 'Women:Vessels'. It develops my ongoing body of work around the female figure and containers. This work has included large scale papercuts, ceramic installations and glass works that draw upon the classical associations between the female figure and the vessel as a container. My intention is that the figure, portrayed as a flat shape, becomes visually intertwined with the vessel itself, be it an everyday colander or a Grecian amphora. They appear as if they are almost passing between one and another as if through a semi-permeable membrane. These artworks reference the metaphoric associations between women and vessels and the way that they are portrayed as features within the decorative and the fine arts. My women are depicted astride, leaning or embracing these vessels, with a touch of irony as if they knowingly understand that tradition within which they have been habitually seen. In terms of making, these artworks combine the fluidity and spontaneity of watercolour, which soaks into the paper, with cut and pasted collage fragments sitting on the surface and acting as a counterpoint.
