is a New Zealand representational painter. Her work is best described as a very specific form of documentary. She’s constructing a body of work that depicts and interprets the complex interactions between our objects, our interiors, and our environments. Why do we collect the objects that we do?, and what do they say about us?—intriguing questions in their own right. But our objects are not just isolated insights into people whom we know and value. They combine in complex ways to create our interior spaces. She’s repeatedly drawn to depicting and interpreting variations in this often unnoticed but deeply constitutive interaction. So even though people are seldom directly depicted in her work they are always present within it.
