Parody of surrealist painter Rene Magritte’s “this is not a pipe”. The peg has no significance other than it sounded a bit like pipe and was a mundane object. I hoped by imposing the limitation of the peg it forced me to look at the object unconventionally. I wanted this piece of work to be playful and celebrate lateral thinking. I find going straight to paper with the scalpel is a very freeing blunt way of making images.
