Artist Statement

My practice is primarily based in sculpture. As an artist I am interested in the hidden parts of everyday life and the tracing of history, this is a running theme in my practice. However other key aspects of my work are also concerned with memories, materiality, objects and shadows. I have been exploring these themes using a variety of mediums and techniques, such as wax, latex, acrylic, sculpture, projections and photography. For the past few years I have been working with latex and have been casting a variety of objects from cameras to buildings. The latex forms a fragile representation of the originals. The concept behind the work is exploring the history of objects and capturing a moment in time.
