I am a sculptor with a strong connection to fiber based craftsmanship; I find working with textiles a route to manifesting my academic, philosophical and religious investigations into physical representations of notions, such as interconnectivity, the power of unity and the strength that lies within diversity.
The process of craft is integral to the creation of my works. I see craftsmanship as a form of communication and a way to make pieces that are contemporary whilst still honouring a traditional process. I create textile spaces through the creation of sculptures in which light can flow both into and out of; creating an influx of shadows, blurred boundaries and the potential for immersion.
I am often seeking the irregular to enrich the interference patterns that occur when the sculptures are in movement. There is a genuine relationship between the tangible and the intangible in my current sculptures as they merge within darkness and their unified shadows collide and interact – a moment in which the body of the beholder and sculptures become one.
I produce literal, visual understandings of the mutual support that binds each and every thing together within our universe. My works stems from an entanglement of emotional, spiritual and material values.
My sculptures are moments of physical philosophy and I am an orchestrator of dances of interconnection.
