How did showing in the exhibition impact your career as an artist?
“The exhibition I was in made a significant impact in my career because it was the first time that my work from a previous solo exhibition had been re-contextualized with other artists. Rather than one piece in a themed group exhibition it allowed me to present a larger body of work alongside two other great artists. This made me reconsider the work in various ways and it effected how I thought about future bodies of work.”
