In my work, through process, I force forms and space into continuous cycles of collision, collapse and reform. I’m interested in how space and form can become manifest, description and re description can somehow render once sturdy self assured ideals as quivering undecided ephemeral masses. Through translation and repetition, starting points are strained into unbridled arenas of flippant acts of disintegration and reform. My compositions operate as continual unfolding spaces, with invisible multiple routes of flight and potentiality. By continually addressing and re-analysing form and space the compositions are lured into a perpetual state of Becoming.
The images I select to work with initially are to be engaged in an aimless iteration. I begin work by using a range of source materials, found images, made images or objects. My compositions originate from reality yet have been transported through processes of collaging, re-collaging, drawing and painting, however, not always in that order, shattering formal constitutions and offering them up as loaded matter.
By continually re working the worked, the outcomes inevitably linger in a nameless zone between abstraction and figuration. The interplay between abstraction and representation allows liminal characters, objects and sites to become apparent. These incarnations are held at the will of the work's surface and are subject to be re-consumed or grown upon, in the next process. These figurative markers signal narratives that course silently under the works surface. The compositions display provisional spaces and forms which are under continual attack from the very process that made them, sitting happily isn’t an option.
