About the work
I am drawn to the symbolic potential of materials, words and forms. I work with raw building materials, domestic found objects and various processes and materials from art history. By recontextualising and reorganising each element, I question and respond to my position of ambivalence. I resist grand gestures. I am more interested in presenting tentative forms that are filled with intensely personal, expansive and at times, contradictory ideas. I explore my position as an artist who is both a devotee and critic of the overtly male-dominated ‘history’ of art, in association with notions of infatuation, love and relationships, both real and imagined.
