Keeping Up Appearances deals with contemporary anxieties, it references both political crises and human frailty. It is about those fragments in time when all is not as it seems – at once all that seemed safe now threatens.
Investigating emotional connections to environment, physical vulnerability, and fear this work offers contemplative juxtapositions of the duality of life; cause and effect, joy and sadness, life and death, self and the other. Its juxtapositions offer the comparative refuge of nature, while prodding the viewer to question the relationships that may (not) exist.
It emphasizes the uncomfortable and fleeting positions we often find ourselves negotiating and allows the impossible – time to examine, calculate and hypothesize answers.
