“My work is formed by the basic attributes of collage; juxtaposing various parts to make a whole, putting one thing together with another thing. As I see it, there is so much information in the world and the assemblage process enables me to slow down and figure out what is in front of me, a way to organise information and contextualise a vision for myself. Whether it is a painting, a tapestry or a floor-based sculpture, my process is a mix of intuition, deliberate placement and awkward mediation.
Through a playful engagement of material exploration, found everyday ephemera are removed from their original context and re- assembled to create entirely new narratives. Taking an archeological approach, selected found objects are chosen both for their formal and their autobiographical value. From these various sculptural fragments, visual signs of contemporary life are juxtaposed against more abstract forms. Accidental shapes and forms are created which are directly turned into two-dimensional appliqué relief paintings. The canvas is cut to shape and directly applied with thick acrylic paint, before being embroidered to the surface, enabling multiple references to be weaved into a single narrative.”
