As an artist that initially felt isolated and uncomfortably distanced from everyday life working within a studio, I started my practice over twenty five years ago creating site specific public art installations, engaging local communities with the belief that art has the power to bridge divides within society. The creative process is still all about making connections for me, within my practice as an artist facilitator, as well as a collaborator and sculptor. Accessibility lies at the heart of my work, incorporating found objects and materials, using low tech methods of construction to create abstract assemblages that reference domestic and architectural space.
My mixed media work combines a rhythmical, systematic design and geometric structure with softer, flexible elements that take shape more organically. I am led primarily by an intuitive response to these contrasting or opposing materials, leading to often unexpected outcomes. These playful interactions, surprising and yet familiar, seek to create a sense of balance and tension, building dynamic connections between materials and the surrounding space, animated through the use of colour, light and shadow.
Artworks, presented in photographic form, remain flexible in terms of scale, interpreted as larger architectural installations or smaller, more intimate encounters.
