Often we are forced to see that beauty can be only skin deep - behind beautiful facades there may be nothing but scaffolding , rubble, mould - or in human terms, a cold, selfish and disloyal personality.

But the reverse can be true - behind many unpreposessing wooden doors in Rome, there are glorious, majestic interiors. Ordinary people sometimes astonish us by extraordinary acts of selfless kindness or bravery. Caged Beauty seeks to demonstrate that the outside is not the full story.

The colour inside the piece is enclosed in another colour. Cutting deeply through the exterior reveals the unexpected beauty, trapped within .
