The Big Egg Hunt for Jack and Jill
The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation asked me, through the Solomon Gallery, to paint a fibreglass egg two and a half feet high to raise funds for their foundation. I had no hesitation in accepting as they do amazing work in providing care and support for children with severe neurological development issues, as well as offering some respite to the parents and families.
To me, the challenge of painting this egg was to try and say something about carers all over the world and not just carers but the silent masses who carry on their very difficult lives with dignity and humour. The end result was this figurative piece which I called “Their Silent Sound Holds All Creation”.
