    Artist Statement

    I seek out methods of reflecting the ‘impossible plane’, constructing abstract geometric linear structures using illusion, trace and spatial retraction. Extracting / flattening / re-extracting line and form by introducing temporal elements, such as shadow and light, in the space between the wall and the floor. I work intuitively through the interaction of natural and manmade materials such as steel, wood, latex, paper and paint, weighing up how these materials unite when placed together through exploring various methods and processes.
    I am particularly interested in how line and form can express the relationships between weight and lightness, strength and fragility, the perceived and illusive tensions in a play of opposites, blurring the distinction between what is solid and transitory, formal and indexical.
    I endeavour to encourage the viewer to recreate in their own imagination the tracing of the form - even to alter their spatial and material perceptions.
