I feel vulnerable for exposing so much of the intimacy of my life. I’m even uncomfortable with you knowing what half of my kitchen looks like. This painting was a bit of a battle to bring into being. The whole painting developed organically, from using my personal recipes, in the collaged background, to realising what my kitchen actually means to me. I eventually managed to get the recipes to be more visible, however I would have preferred the figures to be a little more abstract. In fact I would have preferred the whole painting to be a bit less ME! I mean, why didn’t I just paint a pie?

After reading about loneliness, I wanted to paint something that reflects back to people what it’s like to be human, from how I live. I seem to have painted the human condition of connectedness.
