GO HOME STAY HOME
Well that's what we used to call it - maybe you played Go Home Stay Home 123 or 123 Home?
At my primary back in the day, we had a giant Ginkgo tree that was 'base' that felt like the safest place in the whole playground - to get back there untagged you were untouchable!
For this show, I made a collection of small works that describe moments of childhood independence - those times when mum is out of earshot, or that tingly feeling in the game of hide and seek where you are the last to be found.
But also, these paintings were produced just after the time of Covid19 lock-down, when we all had to slow down, take care and reflect on what effects those “strange days” meant, and the title Go Home Stay Home takes on a whole new meaning.
