Statement

ARTIST STATEMENT


Out of material discovery I began to regard the primacy of the paint drop, a form that takes shape not from a brush or any human-made implement or gesture, but purely from its own viscosity and the air it falls through, as analogous to the building blocks that make up the human body (DNA) or even its mimetic representation (the pixel). 

With this in mind I’ve been working towards creating a narrative of materials as the groundwork to explore changing ideas of human physicality.
