This work is from the series "Human Bonds". Almond (1988) states that there "are three kinds of bonds between human beings: biological and natural; legal and artificial; social and voluntary." The series Human Bonds documents observed and personal relationships as their have unfolded. Unfolding in this particular work are memories of loving times, everyday life and one partner leaving - a chasm is opened up. Disbelieve remains – reality, pain and illusions- some emerge, some disappear.

Research Statement

Research Background Uncertain Substrates comprises a call for artwork to explore materiality as creative risk. The interpretation of a substrate can reach from materials science to biochemistry, marine biology or printing. Uncertain Substrates is translated in these artworks as a mesh of juxtaposing materials which express a variety of human bonds.
Research Contribution 'I thought he loves me’ is part of the series “Human Bonds”. The artwork makes use of contrast rich materials (everyday life wallpaper, flower, paint/tire tracks). Intensive expression of feelings such as dependency and uncertainty are created through juxtaposing materials. Contrasting materials create tension in an attempt to express commonplace and recognizable emotionally draining situations in our everyday life. He left. The deepness of illusion is shown in ‘I thought he loves me’ through the display of tire tracks violently driven over commonplace wallpaper. Devastation emerges - what is on the other side?
Research Significance The use of uncertain substrates in the creative process provides potential to make creative and risk taking decisions and free from the normal constraints of traditional supports of canvas or paper. Exhibited two artworks (mixed media) from the series Human Bonds at Gallery48, The Strand, Townsville, Australia.
