Tellingly, the artist notes: “This year I moved into my own house; renting from my family meant that I could do a bit more with the house in terms of decorating, changing layouts. This led me to the ‘need’ to spend more time looking at such places as IKEA, various furniture shops, appliance stores, and I think this is what led me on to paint some of these spaces and subjects. Was I painting my aspirations? Perhaps I would have liked to own a coffee machine, but as soon as I made the painting, I no longer felt the desire. Perhaps I never really had the desire at all, and I might be a little annoyed at the world for tricking me into thinking that I did”. [non serviam]
