This artwork is a beautiful and striking object, it depicts a tied up woman, with a man behind her who is partially bandaged.
I made this beautiful and intricate artwork during the first lockdown in 2020.
I use bandages as a metaphor for human progress, the forward March of society. This artwork looks as if it has been buried for a very long time, like an artefact from a forgotten time. A glimpse at an undiscovered society, familiar yet not. This artwork would look perfect in between antiques but also in between ultra modern artwork. I think that I have made something that straddles that realm between modern and ancient
