I'm showing a range of work - instead of one body of work.
Engaging materials formal, familiar, synthetic, and discarded I explore what it is to stretch things beyond their original purpose
I'm interested in ambiguity and uncertainty, traces and lines connecting and suspended.
Without prior sketching, I use "interference" techniques such as burning, perforating and cutting to explore positive and negative space.
My ongoing installations are rooted in the exploration of physicality and immateriality.
Through my meditation on chance, control and uncertainty, my work is further stretched by paradox: empty/full, conceal/reveal, shadow/light, fracture/whole, rupture/repair.
The repetitive ritualistic work is a partial response to embracing complexity. While things are changing every second, there is connectedness; the impulse to respond diversely reflecting on our vastness.
