Artist Statement

The subject matter for my work begins with a significant object. I then set out to recreate it using a three-dimensional drawing process in wire and thread. I am aiming to explore its form, the space around it, the area it occupies as an object and the relationship between the object's solidity and its perceived skeletal structure. This process requires continual observation and revision. The sculptural 'drawing' can then be extended into some photographic pieces which aim to further describe the original object and its interpretation in terms of light, line, space and form. In completing each piece, I am aiming to leave something of the original object within the 3D representation I have made, but in doing so I am also recording the object's absence.
