Using elements from historical still life paintings like food, animals and home ware I
create landscapes of white textile sculptures that speak about the time that I live in.
They speak about materiality, my hands experience and the dialogue that experience
allows for in the making of a piece.
In some instances I can let the material inform my decisions, it could be my pushing
the material to its limit and it breaking, or an unexpected drape that I embrace.
In other instances it’s more of a fight with a material, I need to conquer the textiles
softness to create a firm, freestanding object.
My process is based around an understanding of control, when I need to have it and
when I can let go of it, which applies to both art and life.
