Love Works is a series of work exploring the human emotion par excellence, love – as labour, as obligation, as consuming fire, as heavy weight. Recent life events – the loss of a close friend, the birth of a new child, the near implosion of a family unit – have thrown my complicated relationship to love into focus. These works are my attempt to catalogue the ways in which I love and have been loved in turn, and reconcile them with the pure love archetypes presented throughout my upbringing and by society at large.
