'Bringing improper materials together in harmony demonstrates that balance is possible. Perhaps if we can see balance at play we can emulate it.'
My work is sculptural materiality at play, site specific and process based. I play with contradictions and tensions between non-conforming performative materials until I sense balance. The traces of natural and manmade blur in the alchemy of making, resulting in an ephemeral aesthetic with an element of impermanence. I work across mediums and use proto-scientific research methods. The fluid dynamics in my work - between the domestic, urban and organic elements holds an unapologetically effeminate narrative. I make a conscious decision to utilise predominantly recycled and organic materials.
My practice stems from a perspective that places touch as the primary sense, this is manifested in my sculptural space interventions, drawing on the instinctive sensibilities in an audience; 'from melted and fluid to hard and resolute.' - Emma Gittens, writer
