Statement

My work is a drawing based practice attempting to draw links between emotional, spiritual resonance and the physical resonance of sound. I’m particularly interested in visual resonance and audial resonance and visualising (materially) sound that has (attributed) meaning (psycho - acoustics). By using similarly meaningful materials that are essential elements to life I hope to bypass logical and analytical forms of consciousness and encourage the viewer to bring a communal, common or consensual meaning to the work. The pieces generally take the form of sculpture using sound to generate resonant harmonics which manifest visually in various materials.
