created for exhibitions, commissions, projects or residencies.
Through focussing on repetitive process, my practice seeks to expose new insights into routine everyday structures and systems. In this process, I am endeavouring to “layer” slices in time and create complex images or installations that are full of richness and depth. My works attempts to extol the virtue of the ordinary and the routine.
The materials used in my practice are a combination of digital photography, drawing, and printing on a variety of papers including handmade paper. The process of layering figurative images from research or observation produces work that takes on a more abstract appearance. Unconventional methods of layering in my work echo the materials I am using such as sewing layers together when dealing with a domestic theme.
A variety of themes have been explored, including daily washing routines, the cycle of the seasons, the recording of Archaeological finds and the historical archives of a leading university. Through my work I reveal the complexity and interrelation of the world we live in. I hope to foster respect for human endeavour including the routine.
