I make sculptures that are primarily concerned with the bodily and the material, and on unravelling possible meaning through the handling of materials.
Concept and object are integrated at all points of the process. Anxiety and pleasure, irritation and lust, transition and stagnation jostle with each other for emotional attention:
the sculptures can look like poisonously red regency wallpaper, or green velvet lawns, but these associations cannot fully articulate the experience of being with the work.
The work consists in the translation of fragments of memory and emotion into material form.
The final objects are references and triggers for the spectator.
