As the heart skips, thumps, races and soars we are aware that there is a quiet imminence apparent within our own existence. With each palpitation, we consider our mortality. Collecting stories, objects, people and knowledge to help us understand who we are, what we mean and where we are going.
I like to think of my pieces as conversations surrounding this search. Investigations into our transient existence, juxtaposed with the realization of an eternal afterlife.
The works talk of an ongoing evolution, both externally and internally for me, as an Artist and as a person. I am inspired by colour, form, atmosphere and ideas. I am interested in layering the work with meaning and in turn, creating stories.
In ‘Matters of the Heart; Poetry for the Palpitations’ I have used a variety of different mediums. As per the Purist manifesto, ‘The method must be sure enough not to hinder the conception’, I find myself gravitating towards heavily detailed work. I feel that the more control I have over the medium, the better the concept will be executed and therefore understood.
