Artist Statement

Through making and remaking of materials and objects I am developing a series of objects that relate directly to my basic engagement and thinking around contemporary culture, society and value both materially, politically and viscerally. The manufacturing process by myself is often left visible either through mark or traces of the hand and the material is often reclaimed from its first use in different industries, art, manufacturing or energy. Object, text and support are all interchangeable both physically and conceptually and with my current work the viewer is elemental in the activation of the work, rather than prescriptive. The work is digestible.
