Birth year



It’s possible to imagine reality as a pool of amber into which individuals are born and over time the hardening effect of this amber is to freeze or arrest people into ridged thought processes and deterministic practices. The Arrow of time guarantees that flesh and matter will disintegrate and people will die, which creates a sense of urgency and tension to problems that can often remain unexamined.

Creative process can address this and help people to experience the freedom of moving beyond the inherited positions and alternatives which constitute the motor of a congealing force. I am interested in change and the tension between the establishment of form and its breakdown, moments of flux, disruption and creation which often have a destructive or violent element. I’m drawn to figures who bring doubt and uncertainty who give form to change and becoming and the constant energy generated from the instinct to work against congealing forces.
