Artist Statement

I wanted to make work that looked at the ritual of cleansing. In our house the bathtub is part of a nighty ritual before bed, but like every activity in our house it is not a private affair. This image shows how virtually impossible physical space is as a mother of small children. Liminality is created through the use of breastmilk; a cleansing, healing, nourishing potion, but also the very thing that often leads me to feel ‘touched out’.
