Artist Statement
My work is part of my everyday life, the considerations and thoughts that permeate through my head from waking to sleeping are expressed in form. Repetitive daily actions create a time to reflect; the familiarly of the task in hand allows a meditative space, leading to a consideration of time, place and being.
Often the unavailability of materials, leads to exploring other means of creation. Allowing a freedom to push materials and challenge limitations.
Using materials to describe, to interpret, media and apparatus metamorphosing from their denoted use become other, the importance of the smallest of actions; the placing, the supports all aspects play their part equally in the work.
Exploring Information held within; descriptive of DNA, reincarnation.
