Project summary:

An investigation of the move from presence to absence and the ambiguity of the form is at the heart of my present practice. The work that has resulted from these considerations has originated in stories of particular remembered occurrences and places, such as the discovery of an abandoned lamb’s tail in the countryside as a small child.

My aim is to use the AA2A Residency to develop a sequence of etchings exploring the deterioration of the form, building on a recent body of work which took the image from light to dark via the re-application of repeated aquatints. Regular access to printmaking facilities and the university library will allow me to maintain the element of experimentation, exploration and discovery that has been crucial to the development of my practice during my MA.

I am keen to further develop my teaching experience by working with adult students within a higher education setting and look forward to sharing my work with new audiences.
