In my world stairs can be up-side-down, wood becomes weightless, triangles balance on a point and a tree floats in mid-air; using abstract forms in drawing and sculpture, I aim to draw attention to our relationship with the physical world.
Playfully disrupting perspectives, materials and scale, my work combines the serious and the absurd to conjure a space where objects, architecture, natural forms and geometric shapes disobey the laws of physics and create new relationships.
The drawings are surreal structures and spaces that sit between the real and imagined. There is an interplay of diagrammatic and gestural approaches, and detailed mark-making. By employing multiple visual languages, I remove the shapes from their original contexts as I develop the images organically, creating and undermining structural coherence.
My sculptures are nonsensical objects which allow the viewer to experience aspects of the drawings in reality, highlighting the disparity between the freedom of imagination in drawing and the physical limitations within the material world.
I want to engage the viewer in their present, provoke curiosity, and to highlight the role of imagination and physicality during our increasingly digital age.
