Shapes come out to play, hiding in plain sight - a new language to be explored.
Shapes come out to play, hiding in plain sight - a new language to be explored. Through the translation of drawing, print making and writing to sculpture I explore the ephemerality of memory, space, and the haptic experience. Mark making, drawing and sculptural forms are derived from the memories and moments embedded in my mind to create three-dimensional drawing dreamscapes that can be inhabited. Drawing and tactility remain the key catalysts within my work, which inform the curation and exploration of space through intimate yet playful installations. Objects created in time using the likes of glass, ceramic and wood explore the relationships we possess with the haptic and material. I am constantly developing and questioning our relationships with the world and how we position ourselves within it using my own visual language to reconfigure a new dialogue. Shapes, figures, colours, and marks are plucked from my immediate and lingering surroundings and married within the spaces I inhabit. Hand motifs and other ephemeral marks bring the drawings to life, their reconstruction and destruction remind us of what it is like to be within our own skin.
We exist within a world – a world of material means.
I sacrifice my hands for these moments in time
the feeling of losing something creeps up behind
like a blade to the heart
the pain hits the same
