MA Fine Art
Daily practice of observation and recording begins a process of percolation through which eventually, words and objects emerge. These represent a personal cosmology or almanac of emotional response to place, experience and memory, often negotiated through lists or distilled over a period of time to the simplest form. Using slow, labour-intensive craft techniques and hand-lettering, and often working with recycled or ephemeral materials, this hyper-personal subject matter is transformed into a constellation of wall-pieces, objects and book-forms which manifest their own quiet power and significance. The work is concerned with thematic concepts of trauma and recovery, magical consciousness, the positioning of myself within time and place, and the activation of imaginal thought.
