Belongings

Roo’s honestly executed oil paintings celebrate our significant accumulations of domestic clutter. Throughout our lives we gather artefacts around us. We construct our own comfort zone of familiar belongings.

However mundane these accumulated possessions may be, they contain within them our stories. They help us to define what it is to be alive and to piece together our own cultural anthropology – our own context.

The evidence which we gather reassures us of our existence as individuals in the world.

These are my shoes; these are the shoes I like to wear: this is me; this is who I am.’
