This piece is part of a series of three, which make reference to the daily ritual of cleaning (for some a form of OCD). Constructed from prefabricated PU foam ceiling rose, Resene "Nero" paint and coloured mesh sponges.

Dark in colour, and bound in a circular format, "Compulsive" represents the darker side of the compulsion of repeated personal cleansing. The black sponges are grouped enmasse together and provide a textural interest. The colour black represents power, mourning, unhappiness, sexuality, formality and some sophistication.
