" There is a tension and sense of precocity here I am very inquisitive about. My work aims to re-create and expose these moments of balance and tension through the language of objects, colour and architectural intervention. For this reason, brick, stone, metal and recycled objects are usually present in my work. It is toying with our perception and the balance of these construction materials that is vital. Using coats of bright paint on the surface of a solid linear metal bar is almost mocking of modernist 60’s sculpture. This heavy serious material then becomes a playful, awkward and unpredictable object as it balances amongst fragments of rock, relying on its support. I enjoy the way materials and objects take their own form through experimentation; whether that be the gradual chipping away of paint revealing the metal surface, the crumbling and breaking of rocks or the fragments of sculpture taking shape through digital collage."
