£200 — £2000


I am interested in exploring ways in which poetic structures can function visually, by balancing and manipulating material qualities and employing a Thinking through Making approach. Objects relate to ritual, ceremony and adornment and these references create a heightened physical awareness of the body. Initially this is communicated through an immediate, intuitive, tactile language. When closely examined they evoke further associations linked to experiences bound by time, sequencing and memory.
