‘Tumbling Together, Apart’ 

"My practice involves a way of being with the world that pays attention to the mesh of tangled threads. The cracked concrete from the probing rhizomatic roots of a fig tree, the collage of steel and wires from unfinished works at construction sites and other such strange assemblages that present themselves in the everyday are my inspiration. My work synthesises these snippets into haunting and uncanny sculptural arrangements that seek to resist the false dualities constructed by history and language that organise our comprehension of the world. My work instead seeks to exist in that metamorphic, liminal space where nature and culture meet and the past and future are but crumpled folds.

My sculptures reflect my non-hierarchical curiosity for materials and processes. They often combine disparate materials including wood, glass, silicon, steel, acrylic, clay, resin and foam and use an array of processes and technologies including 3D modelling, hand-carving, welding, video and photography. I start with a vision for the work informed by snippets from the everyday and readings of philosophy, anthropology and science-fiction, but then allow the materials and processes to shift and inform the making.

Exploring this tangled web of relations is increasingly pertinent. The burning of fossil fuels has altered the Earth’s climate, technological devices have become bodily extensions which shape and alter our behaviour and recent innovations in artificial intelligence prompt us to rethink who and what we are. In focusing on these concepts, I seek to dissolve the “I”, let the world in and nurture kinship with other species, objects and our surrounds."
