MULKOHA. (THE CUCKOO)
A NEW DIGITAL PAINTING SERIES: ALL THAT WE SEE
‘All that we see,’ is a suite of large-format digital paintings which reflect the touching points from every day
and every night thoughts, our relationship with each other in the world around us.
Based in the dreamscape of reality, the series comprises of imagined scenes with flurries of elements entering
as if scattered through dreams with dominating symbolism – but left in a ‘woke early’ state.
MULKOHA. (THE CUCKOO) finds us in the realm of opportunism.
Symbolic female representation often takes the form of a musical instrument, utilised here as an ornamental
Mariachi Guitar (owned by Frida Kahlo) and combined with a wooden painted model of a Mulkoha Bird (Cuckoo),
who recognises a favourable moment presented to it while safely, but riskily, hidden behind a prickly plant,
as a departing figure appears as disappearing from view.
The telephone is present in order to represent the triangulated communications which become increasingly
complex as scenarios develop, it is also a punctuating metaphor of the increasing passing of time and distance
