My work explores human existence and survival—life during and beyond suffering. The pursuit of existing as “whole,” despite the sense of being in parts. This is a flesh-metaphor. Often the symbols of fruit,
water, and rabbits are used in my explorations of our existence. While the content may appear dark it is equally full of light.
I choose to work with material that has been directly handled by people: discard and scraps of past objects, or material with human-qualities/personality. These are often molten or fluid media: beeswax and watercolour.
In Past works I’ve utilised wood, charcoal, glass, and clay.
An important part of my practice is the act of salvaging. Objects are given a second chance to be whatever it is they become. The figures I create are seeking opportunities to exist as reborn.
