To capture that feeling of being a child again, pure joy running down the sand bank, racing a friend. Collage was absolutely the best medium to give that sense of all arms, legs and movement. Lazy canoe days’ searching for the right riverbank was a good excuse for me to get on the water. In the studio, the pleasure of working with rich, lush oil pastels createda ‘still life’ picnic. Playfully, l added the road sign as culture’s constraints to restrict such pleasures. Touch base with your inner child’s joy.
