“When I made my first depiction of<br />

laughter I felt a rush of recognition<br />

that women in paintings rarely had<br />

their mouths open, much less smiled<br />

and almost never bared their teeth. I<br />

realised that if I wished to see it then I<br />

would have to paint it.<br />

I can't really remember a time when I<br />

didn't observe that most women<br />

exercise self-surveillance without even<br />

having an awareness that they are<br />

doing so....That whatever their<br />

impulse was they should learn to<br />

suppress it.<br />

I suspect most women are not<br />

conscious of when they learned to<br />

subsume their true instincts but rather<br />

when they learned that they could<br />

elect to no longer do so.<br />

I’m always thinking about where and<br />

how women, more often in<br />

collaboration, take up space and<br />

disrupt politeness, how they<br />

circumvent this impulse of self-control<br />

and containment, and in my work I<br />

increasingly explore what might<br />

happen were the confines of good<br />

conduct to fail.<br />

I have been researching historical<br />

examples of women engaging in<br />

violent and disruptive acts, be it<br />

vintage and historical gang culture,<br />

images of Victorian bad girls, pipesmoking<br />

women from the 30's, Teddy<br />

Girls...women getting together in a<br />

pack and having an edge of threat and<br />

danger about them. In tandem I've<br />

been reflecting on the prohibitions<br />

which are placed on women within<br />

society and the particular kind of<br />

opprobrium placed on women who<br />

misbehave. I want to paint what<br />

happens when they do.“<br />
