Statement and brief biog

 

Artist statement

I am intrigued by the narrative qualities, associations and power of ubiquitous objects and by the forces of materialism, marketing, consumerism and obsolescence. The interaction between people and material culture is a recurring area of enquiry in my artistic practice; how we read visual language, how we make sense of our material world and how the stuff that surrounds us defines us. Through the language of ‘stuff’ my work examines the relationship between artist, art-object and viewer and questions the boundaries between thinking and making, creation and craft, authorship and ownership, detritus and artefact.
