Working from the edge in, this line has lifted from the page to become the emboldened black edge of her wearable sculptures in this new body of work. Bounded by memories, they appear in candy coloured enamel and invite recollections of play, toys and childhood adventures. It is memories such as these that have been intrinsic to Gobel’s process as she seeks to ensure that the inherent freedom of childhood remains a part of the adult everyday.
