About this artwork

Year2020 Dimensions76 × 102 cm (width×height) Medium Support

The painting depicts a White’s tree frog as a reference to my childhood during which my father used to
collect and breed frogs. I have painted a section of the frame with a striking matte black enamel paint
following the horizon line within the image, giving a feeling of looking through a window or into a vitrine;
there is a physical sense of being brought into the scene through its expansion over the frame.

One of my earliest memories is of sitting down for dinner and noticing a frog had escaped from its vitrine, it sat in the doorway watching us eat. I remember feeling uneasy about the animal for the first time, experiencing disgust and fear of the confidence of the amphibian; I was made uncomfortable by its suddenly unprotected proximity. It wasn’t until later in
life when I had digested this memory that I found it was much more formative to my art practice than I had yet recognised.

My paintings are characterised by depictions of animals, juxtaposition and often humorous commentary.
