  Fiona Jappy
From Fiona Jappy, Moray, Scotland (UK). “It had been taken away”. Diptych, digitally altered paintings.
On a note attached to the piece, she explains:
“I previously lived in America for three years while undertaking my MFA in 2D/Painting at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. On completion of my studies, due to circumstance, I had to return to Scotland, my native homeland. ‘It had been taken away’ deals with the issue of the loss of my “American Dream” and the barriers that are now in place between my life now and aspects from my past life which now seem unobtainable”.
