Statement

Light is a continuous source of curiosity. It has been integral to my practise through its interaction with the built environment. This element is coupled with a fascination in the overlooked and discarded, bringing together abandoned domestic debris to form site-specific installations and one-off pieces. Through methods of mark making and sandblasting, images transform old mirrors and reclaimed windows into alternative canvases, whilst simultaneously retaining the history of the object. The pieces depict a diverse array of collaged imagery ranging from architectural structures and interiors alongside aspects of nature. In construction the individual pieces come together to form large-scale structures that have a depth of layers and extended visual dimensions.

For Illumini 2010 I have created a new series of site-specific work. Illuminated bio resin puddles subvert the conventions of reflection; images of London appear distorted and displaced from our reality as they sit on the under surface, fragmented and eminating light. They do not reflect their surroundings, but depict the residual memory of the city's water in the form of its environment, closing the space between above and below. Stalactites document the water's journey through the layers of the city to its end in the basement of Shoreditch Town Hall.
