OVERVIEW CREATIVE SKILL: PAINTING DRAWING PHOTOGRAPHY AND MOVING IMAGE DIGITAL PUBLICATION

“ Moving in a circuitous routine from drawing, maquette making, photography, printmaking and returning to drawing again my practice has developed through repetition, experimentation and delicate abstraction. Art, science and historical research all have procedures and constraints that are unique to their particular fields. Through my practice I aim to explore how these disciplines interact, and in doing so expose the structural underpinnings that govern them. Science provides a new sense of scale from cosmological vastness to molecular detail and it is through my practice that I am driven to collect, identify and classify the fundamental role art plays in interpreting the world. The task here is two-fold: to reveal the complexities of the everyday and make the unspectacular worthy of contemplation.

ARTWORKS AS PLAY WHETHER IN PENCIL, PAINT OR MIXED MEDIA, MY WORKS ENGAGE WITH CONTEMPORARY NARRATIVES TO QUESTION AND PROVE HOW ART CAN ACT AS A MEDIUM FOR STORYTELLING. PRACTICALLY, DRAWING DEVELOPS AS SEQUENCES, RATHER LIKE STORYBOARDS FOR A FILM.

PAINT ON PAPER


01

INSERT TITLE

TWO PAINTINGS MADE FOR A PROJECT EXPLORING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAN AND MACHINE.

I HAVE NEVER VIEWED MY PAINTINGS AS FINAL OUTCOMES; ONLY PART OF A PROCESS. WORKING WITH THE LIQUIDITY OF PAINT AND THE POSSIBILITIES OF COLOUR ENABLES ME TO DEVELOP A VISUAL LANGUAGE- SHAPES, LINES, COLOURS AND TONES COMBINE TO PRODUCE SENSATIONS OF VOLUME, SPACE, MOVEMENT AND LIGHT TO REALIZE A UNIQUE VISUAL IMAGE.


FABRIC WORKS


2019

PROJECT 11 A PROJECT REVOLVING AROUND THE CRAFT THAT ENABLES SCIENTIFIC ADVANCEMENT FOCUSING ON THE SEAMSTRESSES OF NASA APOLLO 11 SPACESUITS RECRUITED FROM UNDERGARMENT MANUFACTURER ‘PLAYTEX’. INTERPRETING THE GARMENTS WORN BY ASTRONAUTS, MY OWKR OPENS A DIALOGUE BETWEEN MAN AND MACHINE AND WOMEN’S PLACE AS THE DEVELOPERS FOR THE APPARATUS NEEDED TO ADVANCE HUMAN KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITY. THE GARMENTS FORM GHOSTLY REMINDERS OF A MISSION ONLY MADE POSSIBLE BY THE HANDS OF WOMEN.
