Transmutation

2020

Artist Statement

The evidence that our experiences and environmental factors impact us is undeniable. These forces shape natures landscape, some impacting more than others. Our landscapes transform with the traces of these collisions and we are forever changed.
Natures resilience varies in strength, where one may slightly alter through experience another is changed completely. In an individual these changes manifest through behaviour and thought processes, the new version of self transmuted into a hybrid form of the old and new.

Interwoven

2019

Artist statement

The quiet spaces in nature transfix me. In this environment, my mind is given the space to expand and the connection between place and thought strengthens, over time becoming inseparable. This body of work is a representation of one such journey.
Exploring themes around relationships, the central questions are concerned with how we connect to those around us, what shapes our ideals, wants and desires, how these change over time, and how timing, power, independence and vulnerability play a role in our experience of these connections. To what extent are we controlled by these influences, whilst also unconsciously never wanting to surrender our innocence in the hope that we will find a real connection?

With the use of symbols and visual metaphors within my work, I translate these ideas onto canvas. The stitching binds these thoughts and my hand to the work, giving texture to an otherwise flat surface.

headspace

2012

Artist statement

Headspace is an exploration in the psyche, delving into the multiple theories which attempt to explain the Self.
Inspired by these physiological hypotheses the pieces demonstrate the concepts that each individual is a combination of many parts.
The multiple versions of self created through experience and expectations from the outside world and thus forming a complex inner world.

Traces

2011

Artist statement

“Traces of humanity with the construction,

Trace of humanity in its destruction,

Trace of humanity from the marks they leave,

Trace of my existence when I bind all three.”

Photographic image on canvas with hand embroidery.
