'In Between Meetings' captures a moment in time where work and family life intertwine. The piece is a quiet commentary of a new reality: working from home. During meetings, my mother presents a professional demeanour - headset on and papers ready; off-camera, she turns to the home comforts of a dressing-gown over work attire and eating at the dining-room table turned office-desk. Subtle connotations in the window, lighting and expression are chosen to create a relatable work to the onlooker and yet leaves the interpretation open to whatever questions it may evoke. Painted in multiple layers of oils and liquin, the detailed areas contrast against the simple, adding depth and shadow and revealing parts of the painting process the longer one is to look.
