b.1998, Wiltshire

Working and living in Cornwall

My practice explores the dialogue created between our body-space and the surrounding architecture, playfully engaging the audience into a dance with the sculpture as it occupies a space. Questioning how a space is both physically and emotionally interacted with by the body and senses through movement.

 

I work with materials from paper to metal, manipulating the material’s limits to create a play between weight and balance, strength and fragility, open and closed, exterior and interior. Using patterned textures through illusion and layering to abstract the surrounding space, evoking a stillness in movement. For me, my practice is a meditative, obsessive process of repetition; cutting, folding, and twisting, building an intimacy between my body and the material to form the final structure.
