Artist's statement

This image was part of a mini series of work based on a very short period within my family’s life. My Mother, Leanne McNaught, has recently undergone surgery to remove tumours from her eye and hand. I focussed on the recovery process and the uncertainty of not knowing if these tumours could prove to be cancerous. I was really focussing on the fear of her possible absence and further illness.
