Born in 1958 I live, work and study in Surrey.  I am currently studying for a Fine Art MA but up until 2016 had little knowledge or experience of contemporary fine art.  While studying for her BA Fine Art (Hons) I quickly assimilated ideas and concepts which soon became reflected in my collage work.  My collages contain themes of the everyday and nature using her own and found images. The metamorphoses of the images and the materials create works which are often 3d and sculptural and contain the intertwining of pattern, shape and colour to create opposing perspectives.

Artist Statement

Born in 1958 I live, work and study in Surrey.  I am currently studying for a Fine Art MA but up until 2016 had little knowledge or experience of contemporary fine art.  While studying for her BA Fine Art (Hons) I quickly assimilated ideas and concepts which soon became reflected in my collage work.  My collages contain themes of the everyday and nature using her own and found images. The metamorphoses of the images and the materials create works which are often 3d and sculptural and contain the intertwining of pattern, shape and colour to create opposing perspectives.  

 

The work is looking at intricate connections and associations we have and need to develop further with our surroundings.  It is looking at the layers of information that are contained in a single viewpoint or image.  The work tries to look in depth and beyond what is physically possible and at underlying constructs which could develop a new way of looking at the world.

 

The work is influenced by Jane Bennett’s Vibrant Matter in which she asks the viewer to contemplate creating a new way of looking at the world, one which does away with the hierarchical idea that humans are the only agents in the world.  The work explores a way of viewing the environment anew.

 

Recent work has developed at a tangent from previous work by becoming monochromatic, two-dimensional and explosive or detailed in scale.  The prints have been developed from the collages which are the mainstay of the work.  Deleuze’s Fold Theory is evident in these collages which have the potential to grow and change. The collages offer the potential of being all encompassing and boundless allowing alternate routes to be taken.
