Studies In Self Healing 10 (Bow)2017
Air drying clay, thread, plant stem, wire, anti-reflective super flat black acrylic paint
From an ongoing series of small-scale sculptures and collage conceived during a period of chronic illness.
Themes of fragility, value, and transformation are explored through works that make use of primitive, natural materials. They reference a mythic world of pre-modern artifacts, talismans and alchemy – a faith in ritual and self-healing.
These objects and collages can be read both as intimate portraits of the artist’s experience and more widely as symbolic explorations into humankind’s psychological states.
