Another exciting highlight of our MA Show which opens to the public tomorrow evening from 6pm…come join us for an evening full of wonder!
My paintings activate and occupy space; walls, floors, ceilings, furniture and air become charged with tension creating a form of drawing choreographed in space. Every decision involves the repair and transformation of a material, the trust that the work will sit in a particular way or grip onto a particular surface.
I carefully reconstruct my aluminium, canvas or paper paintings whilst gathering materials, objects and paint to combine to make new structures. I set up conditions to explore unusual ways of mixing and distributing paint into, onto and through the structures.
Pieces pour off walls onto the floor, both visually and physically and take over architectural spaces. Nothing is fixed until it intuitively looks right and anything in the studio can be used as a material or a support. This process of transformation from original is significant. This lack of preciousness frees my earlier constraints and blurs the lines between drawing, installation, object, painting and sculpture.
