Making, the collaborative action of myself, material and process, is at the core of my practice. I am using making to think, I am thinking about how things never stay the same. Through making I am exploring how flat sheet material can move and change into three-dimensional form; how perception can shift due to a switch in scale, how the application of colour can result in a transformation. I am thinking about movement and change.
Through making I endeavour to create sculptural objects which speak of the dynamic processes that created them. The sculptural objects from my Wood and Thread series balance precariously, their contact with the ground perhaps provisional, they appear to have potential to take off from the surface on which they stand.
Moving around the work the forms appear to change; unexpected areas of colour materialise, patterns of changing light and shadow emerge. Viewing the work from different angles reveals how relationships, between individual pieces, and between aspects of an individual, appear to shift and alter, depending on what they stand in relation to.
