Artwork Statement

'The Lismore Regional Art Gallery (e) print portfolio influenced my research into the opulence of Dutch seventeenth century still life painting and Australian recipe book photography. For example, the publication Cookery in Colour - A picture encyclopedia for every occasion, edited by Howard L. Pattern for the Australian Women's Weekly, London, 1960, p 492 instigated the appropriation of a dessert recipe photograph in which I made a colour thermal print with relief etching, chine colle and embossing. It can be considered that my print titled Sweetest Thing, 2001 depicts the erotic nature of a dessert recipe representation'. The artist
