Artist’s statement

'The magical mystery tour is waiting to take you away…’ – John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

By taking a journey through the piano, the beauty and intricate workings of music are revealed. The frivolous elements of both the piano and music reflect the joy that we carry within. My work depicts the joyous nature of music and the excitement that it creates; it enables objects to speak for themselves to display the whimsical underlying truth to music. The unravelling of the piano allows for a deeper insight into the instrument. Let music take you away to a world of excitement and expression.

Influencing artist: Cornelia Parker
