My work is equally informed by conceptual ideas and physical processes and play. I explore subjective relationships to structures, aesthetics and spaces through sculpture, installation and collage. By allowing intuitive configurations of forms in relation to their site, my practice questions the dualities between materiality and immanence, the engineered and the organic, perhaps offering possibilities for finding one’s space in the world.
How do structure and rationale interact with the personal and emotional?
How can we use aesthetics and the energy of matter in a transformative way? I am inspired by the relationships between architecture and the body and Eastern philosophies and spiritual practices, such as meditation and feng-shui.
I am drawn towards the poetic potential of industrial materials like glass and piping often combining them with symbolic substance, such as incense, to reveal psychological depths to familiar structures. I am currently working with interior design and home improvement as forms of contemporary shrine making, developing a series of installations which work through the contradictions between perfectly designed spaces and the mess of lived experience.
As well as my sculpture practice, I teach workshops, curate shows and write.
I am interested in collaborations with other artists, curators, dancers and choreographers, in Brighton, London or further afield.
