As an MA Fine Art student at Bath Spa University (expected degree award Fall 2019), my research is focused on mixed media sculpture.
I am interested in a duality between using minimalist strategies paired with organic expressive materials to explore human issues – to find tension both in the work and in the combination of material choices. My work tests the limits of material and form – how opposites such as strength and delicacy, impermanence and stability, accretion and disintegration come together and fall apart.
I am interested in how strength might be expressed through materials that appear inadequate for the task at hand. Contingency, failure, repair, and reuse are central to this process. There is a call and response that asks me to find solutions as materials fail, are mended, weighted or reinforced.
