“I primarily work with installations/impermanence. The multiples are a small way of manufacturing my works for people to own. This multiple had connections/references to larger and on-going works. SHHHH was originally a wall work planned for a library. The librarians found it ‘inappropriate’: I found it amusing to make a large sign very boldly telling people to be quiet. SHHHH became an enamel multiple around the birth of our daughter. A few friends also had young children and I saw the sign being used in homes/bedrooms – to no avail!
