Bare Bones (Rage, Apathy, Anxiety, Fatigue) (2022) consists of four small rectangular forms, each with a precarious lean, sharp, gleaming facets and tactile patterns. I aimed to allow the inherent qualities of BRT to shine, highlighting with surface decoration.
The series visually represents various weather-beaten sandstone and rocks observed on walks along our coastline, which I have taken as part of my management of the effects of perimenopause. However, I also see them as a self-portrait. The tilt of each form seems to capture the constant swaying of my emotions, always struggling to be upright, and the weathered surfaces could be skin settling around my changing body.
