"In the absence of knowledge the deep is a site where the imagination has full rein" (Alex Farquharson, 2013)

My practice primarily involves working within the realms of Photography, Sculpture, and Painting, creating striking, large-scale works and installations.  I am fascinated by the qualities and properties of the materials that I use and the way in which their physicality can occupy a given area. Often drawing inspiration from site-specific locations, my work aims to powerfully alter and interact with particular spaces or environments.

 

As well as my practice being centered on the exploration of space, my photography and sculpture explore nature and the female form, examining both notions of strength and fragility. Using myself as a material, as well as flowers, water, ink, resin and perspex, my ‘sculptural floral narratives’ create an intricate mix of, transition, transformation and physicality. This in turn directly communicates with the rest of my practice, one informing the other, drawing form, from the nuances’ of aesthetic, energy and atmosphere.

   

I am constantly challenged and captivated by the way in which the materials and processes I use evolve differently through my practice and I relish the twists and turns in navigating these effects. The way I personally interact with my photography and sculpture,  involves me being very physical, and often uncomfortable and it is this dynamic and energy that is key to the development of my practice.

 

“I am following Nature without being able to grasp her, I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers”  (Claude Monet)
