Artist's Statement

A Heart Divided talks about my divided self as a child growing up in Scotland with a Scottish father and a mother who was born in South Africa. It also refers to the division in my own life whereby my childhood was spent in Scotland, but the majority of my life has been lived in South Africa.

This work will pave the way for a future major work (see A Heart Divided Installation 2011).
