Hailey Atkins’ This is Pep Too! presents a body of new sculptural works and large-scale drawings that revise the meaning of ‘pep’ to incorporate the reality of failure and anxiety. Using playful form and colour, Atkins draws on the personal to articulate ‘in-between’ experiences and the uncomfortable yet potentially productive and funny spaces between doubt, failure and defiant enthusiasm.
