"5 South forms part of a new body of work influenced by architecture and dwellings. I have chosen to restrict my palette for these new works and will be mainly drawing on the colours found in hospitals. Chosen for their calming effects, these pale pinks, yellows, mauves and vivid turquoises punctuate our lives; at birth, death, and all the moments in between where we are most vulnerable; they illustrate our attempts to soften what can feel like a hostile environment. The sharp angles of 5 South's grey triangular base are tempered by the tactile green foam lining and the fluid curve of the snake it supports. For me, it says something about the symbiosis that exists between habitat and dweller." – Polly Morgan
