Artist's description:

'Quinie perched on loon's heid' (Scots for 'Woman perched on boy's head') tells us of the relationship between a boy and a woman. The identity of the woman is unspecified, allowing the viewer to interperate the narrative in a number of ways.
The wallpaper, based on a design from William Morris's firm, is significant. It alludes to a paradisiacal realm, however the distortion of the forms and lines suggest emotions far darker, akin to a Van Gogh portrait.
