About

"I make marks with paint that are closed and open loops with a paintbrush. Cutting this coral reef shape out I felt as though I was cutting out the loops as positive shapes. The sparkly material was fun to use. It’s plastic but felt like a luxury item when using it. It is on top of a monoprint and a crayon d'ache drawing."
