Fray

The structure of my body of work reflects the life of a family – people bound by their relationship, but separated by their natures – and visualises the way children become the translation between two families. The dual meaning of ‘fray’ is represented in the literal unravelling of the rope and a metaphorical situation of intense conflict, where there is a struggle to resolve differences. Families are at the zenith of their influence while the children are still gaining their independence. As teenagers on the cusp of adulthood, we begin to stray from the initial thread and create our own, stretching and blooming in all directions, ad infinitum.
