'The paintings in Serious Whimsy attempt to investigate the often tenuous and complicated relationship between the ‘decorative’ and abstract painting. Using the Rococo art movement as a point of reference, I combine decorative patterning with my continued interest in the ribbon motif. My intention is to tease out concepts associated with the Rococo: elaborate ornamentation, theatrical design, levity and indulgence. Ultimately, they are serious paintings about whimsy. ' SC, 2018
