MA work

I went on a guided tour around some underground caves a few years ago. The lights were turned off for a moment, I was completely overwhelmed by the density of the blackness, both suffocating and immensely spacious. I felt aware of the structure of the caves and the fragility of my own form within them. The age and solidity of the rock was both protective and crushing and made me imagine the pressure of the air moving in and out of my lungs.

My work is about the repetition and mirroring of natural forms and the different ways in which materials respond to one another. I try to relate these materials and processes to compulsive behaviour and a state of discontent.
