My practice at the moment explores the theme of fascination and the mystery that revolves around it. Not much is known about why we as humans get fascinated and so it is a complex idea. My practice helps me to explore and research this idea by delving into my own fascinations and narratives that revolve around it.
My sculptures often incorporate an object, either found or bought. These objects are used as starting points for my thinking and research into my own fascinations. I explore why I’m instantly drawn to them; whether this is because of its aesthetic value, its function or its design. The work evolves and grows around these objects physically and conceptually. With this cannibalistic approach to materials I will absorb the object and rework its functionality.
I am constantly being seduced by my surroundings which I capture through the visual language of photography. My photographs act as a diary but also aid as visual references for my sculptures and paintings. My paintings use the photos I’ve taken or collected whilst traversing the internet. This then helps me to explore this certain aesthetic through a different medium. I interweave different elements within my paintings referencing things I’m currently exploring, whether this is Greek Gods and the plants affiliated with them or nostalgic graphics from films and video games. In doing this my paintings encompass my current fascinations and preserve them by turning them into physical objects.
