My practice is research based and has resulted in painting, installation, sculpture, drawing, and book-works for exhibition, using various media from wax and graphite powder to plaster, paint or found objects. I am interested in the nature of the objectivity we seek when looking in mirrors, constructing and consulting maps to understand our place in the world or making signs warning us to keep away from the edge. This has resulted in blind mirror sculptures, a graphite-lined chamber (‘The Cabinet of Imagined Mirrors’), an assemblage of cartographical curiosities, and paintings of isolation: the most recent being ‘Caravanserai’, a series of small paintings in almost matching pairs. Some of the caravans are real; some fictional; all started with a photograph, a film still or a literary reference. While hinting at the dweller within, the paintings offer little information to the viewer; merely suggesting ungraspable, individual narratives. This element of suggestion and something physically elusive is often present in my work, whether looking at reflective surfaces or watching for the point of turning in the tides. My current project, based around flood-waters and their effects on individuals, is evolving as part of a series of curated site-specific works. At Kingston I hope to develop the project in various ways, exploring the use of text/‘found’ poems to make an artist’s book & series of prints, and experimenting with both physical and digital methods of using written words, objects and the element of water for further installations.
