There are ongoing links in my work between a female body, nature, animals , mythology, folklore and domestic spaces occupied by women and where stories are told. This is one of my relatively recent pieces: Pegasus. The stripped lampshade cover made me think of a caparison and when I added a wing, it just became a flying horse. With the one-breasted corset-like armature of a deconstructed lampshade it can also be seen as an Amazonian warrior. Or maybe it is a winged female Centaur?
