Checkered Floor invites the viewer to observe, close up, unnoticed domestic elements that make up our interior environments. Large size block colours and geometric shapes bring to the fore each element and draws our attention to the making of interiors and how we perceive them each day.

'The defining concepts of my practice are the domestic setting and the process of perception. Featuring contemporary culture and the objects and people around me, I have worked in the traditional genres of still life and interior painting. With the objective to impart the sensation of objects found in everyday life, the familiar is made unfamiliar, distorted through the action of painting to prolong and deepen how it is perceived' - Louisa Livingstone
