As You Stand I Shall Flourish (Studies in Self Healing )2017
Building rubble, steel, solid silver cast of thorned twig.
Sculpture from a series of small-scale works and collages conceived during a period of chronic illness and isolation. Fragility, self value, and transformation are the focus of these artefacts that speak to talismans and alchemy – a faith in ritual and self-healing. They can be read both as intimate portraits of the artist’s experience and more widely as symbolic explorations into humankind’s psychological states.
