In my work and my thoughts, I often feel drawn to past centuries. It strikes me how wealthy women were showered with luxuries and diversions, but in their possibilities of self expression or self-directedness were almost as bad off as any poor peasant. I wanted to show the feelings I myself might have experienced - sorrow, resentment, emptiness - in the face of this piece. The title' my pet', an old endearment, expresses tenderness, but at the same time superiority and ownership.
