It has never been my intention to tell a story but to begin a conversation…
Largely material led play has become an important part of my methodology giving rise to the element of surprise and creating a visual curiosity intended to engage the viewer whilst still allowing room for personal dialogue.
Embracing the ‘space between’ the past and the present – the visible and the invisible – the real and the imagined, much of my work relies on an emotive response (albeit personal) referencing what has gone before and reinterpreting this through material choice and abstraction of familiar forms.
