Walled Garden
 
This series is predicated on fragmentation and separation, it considers ways in which women tend to be perceived in parts, not as a whole. Historically the walled garden in art denotes a space set apart, specifically a feminine space. My process utilizes found imagery sourced from the ancient world to the 21st century, combined with painting and photography to weave a pictorial space that is neither purely one nor the other. The technical history is not readily visible on the painted surface; like the unreliable narrator the surface is ambiguous, inviting questions on the veracity of the constructed image.
