    Installation view of solo show at Blyth Gallery, Imperial College, London 2016  ARTIST TEXT: In this series, multi-faceted representations of jubilant “walls” allow for an exploration of identity as an interweaving of narratives. In the context of 18th century grotesque ornamentation, these paintings playfully consider the decorative as a vehicle for social satire and caricature. In consultation with Ceramics Curator Terry Bloxham, I have studied the iconography of Delftware tiles in the V&A Museum collection, as a departure point for my own imaginary tiles. The resulting large works represent tiled walls and figures, reflecting on themes of “wall-painting as ruin”, and “wall as mask”. The painted  trompe l’oeil  depiction of tiles allows for an exploration of image-as-grid, incorporating interruptions and fragmentations, because tiles, in so far as they can appear damaged, replaced, restored, can be imperfect representations. It is that mix of functionality, decoration, and imperfection in portrayal that interests me.
