In my practice I explore the connection between embodied experiences, emotions and memories. The main themes revolve around sentiment, distress, abjection and the body. Through the combination of different materials and forms, I investigate the boundaries and fluctuations between the pleasant and repulsive.
I like combining resilient materials such as ceramics, wire and concrete with soft and perishable materials such as hair, lard, honey, and living cultures to confront the longevity of the artwork. I utilise scale and juxtaposition to reference solidified consequences of trauma, vulnerability and fleshiness of the body. In addition to sculptural work, I often find myself working with sense of smell to unpick the ideas of sentiment and memories.
