My practice is focused on the process of manipulating everyday forms. I abstract these using a scanner, flattening, elongating and magnifying; obscuring functional objects into complex, layered imagery. This results in a unique form made through a moment of movement that can never be recreated.
Once I have made these digital images I use the abstract shapes created through the process to make 3D forms, from a range of materials such as metal, clay, wood and acrylic. I bring the original object back into the 3D after it has been compressed and manipulated, and is often scaled up considerably. I use this visual language of new objects or ‘letters’ to then make the conversation between the sculptures and their shapes, textures, scale and colours, with a tension created by showing these objects alongside the prints of the digital images they emerged from; as if forcing them back into, or to interact with, the two dimensional again. By using these different materials to recreate these shapes I am also exploring different forms of line and surface and how these can be translated and represented.
