'Silently haunting me for months was a cardboard box labelled ‘fragile’ in the corner of my room. It was left over from one of my moves and hadn’t made it out the door. I found my gaze often resting on the box, the bold letters ‘Fragile’ taped across the box sticking in my mind. I began thinking of the word ‘fragile’; my relationship with the word and what it means to feel fragile. Fragility can be seen as vulnerable and delicate, though to me fragility can also feel awkward, uncomfortable and obvious to the people around you. During the process of making the painting it seemed like an appropriate image of what I was feeling at the time.' - Ella Dunn
