She was backed into a corner.



Found photos, acrylic paint, graphite, paint chip samples
20 x 27.5 cm (approximately)

Idioms continue to play a big part of my every day. (I did a project on a series of idioms based on the word "Air" for Rojo magazine and Nike last year.) I am so conscious of how often I use them and the role they play in terms of culturally defining who I am.
Last weekend L. and I decided to goto Kassel to see Documenta 12. On the ride there we were brainstorming a bit about the word "back", and we came up with a huge list of idiomatic phrases.
This collage is based on one of them.

(This work has sold.)
