“I am drawn to this work based on its three-dimensionality and form alone. Coming from the point of view of a dance artist, work that plays with the scope of the body is of the most interest to me. But also I love sports, sports loves me! evokes many potential forms,  narratives and sparks the imagination for me.

Recently I danced alongside this little sweater at the Gallery’s Everything Everyday exhibition, as part of Family Fuse Weekend. For me this was the perfect pairing: highlight the here-and-now as beauty and life itself is its own artwork, while at the same time broadening the scope of the Gallery’s exhibit by giving the works a kinetic representation for the young eye to pick up and appreciate.”
