I work in a context of an interest in time and trauma, and how this is recorded and experienced by the body. I am someone to whom materials are important as carriers of layers of association and echo with a n innate symbolic poetry. I work with and use a variety of materials for their properties; both mythical and literal, and factor in the transformative qualities of the processes they may be put through to manifest traces and echoes of time and enfold space within a sculptural practice that explores tension, balance and stasis.
I value the quality of sculpture as a vessel that hold “everything at once” in terms of its meanings and how it exists and relates to time and being out of time; akin to the intensity and interplay of meaning in the experience of reading poetry, I relish the density of experience this gives me.
My material is born from that bog land of the buried and discarded, and from losing.
