"Keeping on Track" comprises several kinetic installations that display wearable jewellery and other objects. The title of the exhibition ostensibly refers to the track-like movement of objects but it has another meaning that can be discerned only by observation and reflection.

In her practice, Fiona has been experimenting with different design concepts and diverse materials to create objects that are imbued with visceral and evocative meaning. Her work is often inspired and influenced by socio-economic, geo-political and environmental issues that impact everyone. The installations relate to some of the dilemmas and challenges that disrupt our lives and demand new responses. In this exhibition, Fiona has sought to engage the audience with something that appears, on the surface, to be light-hearted and entertaining but which, on reflection, holds a deeper meaning.

Fiona is seeking to present contemporary jewellery as a platform for dialogue about general concerns in the world today. This exhibition is designed to engage and entertain the audience and to provoke discussion about the issues it raises.
