Barbiturates Series 2, Oil on Canvas, 255 x 255mm

"In Barbiturates, the candy-coloured shapes, or pills as the title suggests, appear almost burnt onto the canvas, its bitter sweet effect quite beguiling and tactile; ... with suggestion of both transfiguration and heaviness, are a cathartic rendering for the artist, the very mechanism of painting being her own poison of choice."
