Artist Statement

My practise is deeply rooted in the practise and histories of sculpture, having studied this at degree level. An exploration of traditional sculptural methods lie at the core of the work: a series of larger carved sculptures, are seen scattered amongst more carefully considered (often) cast objects. Each in turn challenging and undermining prevailing sculptural traditions and that of monolithic masculine modernist sensibilities.

Through my work I re address contemporary and historic feminist issues, lusting after an intersectional feminism that is inclusionary for all bodies. Influenced by the ‘sex wars’ that ignited in the second wave of feminism, Iquestion if there is a way to relocate the role of pornography within society; away from the endless reiterative parade of white, slim, compliant bodies and instead towards the multiplication of a more inclusive repertoire of desire.

My aim for the future with my practise is to continue to carve a platform for myself, a gender non comforming afab artist in a field that is still male dominated. I want to path the way for other artists like myself and continue to raise and highlight issues that are pertinent to our existence and artists and human beings. I want to be seen.
