ON THE WALL
or hanging free - mostly large work
I am interested in absence and presence and the intersection between the two - that elusive sense of depth and movement which connect the boundaries of what we see with what we don’t.
What is real and what is not?
You know the feeling when a soft wind brushes past, or the sound of water gently trickling over rocks - at that moment you could almost step into, or at least catch a glimpse of, a parallel world.
Sometimes I use the human form to represent that other, maybe more spiritual, world. A quiet observer.
Shadows and reflections are important to me for the way they simplify and distort shapes.
Working with cloth, I decorate and build it up in layers playing with positive and negative spaces, repeating simple patterns and ‘weaving’ the shapes together with colour.
