Stone carving is not a common practice but when I was introduced to it in the second year of my BA, I quickly found an affinity as well as a love for it. It is now my usual medium. Drawing also plays a fundamental role in my work and I often combine the stonework within an installation or exhibition with drawings and sound.
Space, form and movement are very important in my work. For me, the act of making sculpture is not just in the having an idea then making it, it involves the subjectiveness of the mind’s nature and the body. An organic look is what I aim for, a sense that the sculpture has been caught at the point just before moving.
I'm intrigued with space and uncertainty, where movement and change are essential components of uncertainty. Change is a part of time and as we move on, we layer our new thoughts and ideas on things that went before, creating connections between the past and now.
