Rubber Curtain 2017

Rubber Curtain is an installation made from canvas, latex and spray paint. The work has a crumpled, creased look, creating dark secrets within the folds. The colours used are pus yellow, together with red to symbolise blood and green introduced to show the possibility of infection. Yet at the same time the colours have the harmonious beauty of nature. Rubber Curtain represents a dark dystopian curtain, reminiscent of a curtain round a hospital bed, or a make do curtain put up in a squat or refugee camp. Curtains used to preserve privacy and dignity in difficult situations.
