Transform opened at West End Art Space, Melbourne in March 2018. It was a small selection of paintings that I had completed in Leipzig, or on my return from Germany. Whilst on this residency, I worked on subverting the tale of the fox and the goose. In my tale, the fox succumbs to the goose and through love changes his ways. This was my hope for the political climate in the world, that we could all learn to love in spite of our differences.
