My work references body process in looking at issues of identity and boundaries. I am interested in the physical limits and daily ritualistic frameworks of the body, how these are perceived and physically manifested. Rejecting any physical representation of the whole body I choose instead to focus on its fragments, perception, traces and processes.
The challenges to my own physical and mental boundaries involved in making the work are also tested by my use of the diverse processes I adopt in the construction of the work, including welding, casting and electronics - they all represent to me sculptural superpowers, yet the work also presents a vulnerability with the juxtaposition of humble ephemeral materials, alongside the steel, plaster and glass - a detritus of the wrappings and trappings of consumer culture combined to form it, plastic wrapping, cardboard, foam and cloth. My life defined by my consumption of consumer culture.
My practice is given its substance from my particular areas of research and interest, quantum physics, body processes, an abiding love of “stuff” and a naïve desire to believe in escape or breaking boundaries.
