Rose Wylie in The Guardian
“The work has an air of both freedom and fragility. Painted directly on to unstretched, unprimed canvas and framed by strips of loosely stuck black fabric, it resembles a tapestry as much as a painting. It combines a variety of collaged materials and mediums: oil paint on canvas and watercolour on paper, as well as the visible staples. It also juxtaposes abstract shapes and forms with surprising details, such as Piper’s comb-like hands.’’
