FOUND THE WAY OUT
IN THE WORDS OF COLIN HAY “I THREW ONE MORE DICE”
Working predominately in sculpture, installation and video, I create work in response to the everyday urban environment. I collect, categorise and re-present discarded objects, highlighting the vitality I see in them. Repetitive processes allow me the time and space to contemplate and collaborate with each material to activate it in some way. My intention is to prompt us to deeply consider our consumer driven lifestyles and our relationship with the redundant, seeking to prove that the unwanted is in fact of value.
Looking intensely, I consider the potentiality in everything I encounter. Recently my i-phone became the best means through which to capture, with tenderness, my personal journey of losing my mother, my mentor and friend, to cancer. It is through process and actively participating with the material, that helps me to make sense of the world I am living in today.
