You are my favourite, 2018

The words say: In the dark and quiet of this room, you are my favourite. 

The marks and symbols say a whole lot more that’s deeply private and personal to me. 

I am so enjoying making these marks and symbols which express things I can’t say in any other way.

This artwork is a painting I made for a lovely Auckland couple, M&G.  They commissioned it for their bedroom, and was their Christmas present to eachother.

The phrase “you are my favourite” is what they say to eachother, often.

“In the dark and quiet of this room” is me thinking about how it is when you’re alone in bed with the one you’re in love with, and how, for those hours, the world falls away and no matter how much you love others in your life, right then, you are eachother’s best and favourite person.

The words also resonated with me because I have called my son my favourite for long years now.

Thanks, M&G, for allowing me to bust this out for you, for allowing me to take risks with the work, and make work for you in this new direction.  Working with you was a delight. //
