Evoking a sense of joy, humour and nostalgia is central in my work. I do this through the playful use of colour, shape and form; aiming to tell a story in the pieces I make. The relationship between different materials and the translation of two to three dimensions is an integral part of my practice: the evolution of a drawing transforming into life to become something real is key, transitioning from something liminal to physical.
I am often intrigued by our relationships with objects and the versatility of coexisting materials in a ‘domestic collage’. Objects are the props of our existence in the theatrical interior scenes we inhabit. While exploring the material landscape of the domestic and how the roles of the functional and the sculptural play within this, I look at our modern and primal rituals within the private yet digitised domestic space. I intend to create work that embodies this by abstracting the familiar and functional and turning it into something sculptural.
