I make sculptures from thousands of small items and I describe myself as an 'Artist & Purveyor Of Mad Obsessive Projects.
Although my work is rooted in sculpture, it revolves around a core interest in line. Indeed, many of my sculptures could be regarded as drawings in air.
My art explores issues of time, fragility and loss: capturing the traces left behind by events and exposing hidden stories are central concerns. Slow labour intrigues me and my current practice is based on obsessive repetitive processes that straddle the divide between meaningful ritual and mindless pattern-making. At the moment I'm entirely covering an apron in sequins. Past projects have involved burning thousands of matches; tying knots in string; making toffee keys that melt and ritually pinning a long piece of fabric.
