Recently she has turned her sights on the archetypal playground as a vehicle for describing these contrasting themes, manipulating impressions of those familiar objects specifically made for the process of childhood play and experiment. Like the house structures predominant in earlier work these structures may not be what they seem being as fallible, and unreliable as they are dependable and secure.
