I work mainly in sculpture and installation,using many different materials. Often site responsive, physically intervening with a space, choosing materials that belong, identify or respond to a place following research. A recent commission to make a body of work inspired by the moors, I scavenged natural materials from the landscape , made sculptural responses and photographed back in the landscape. Using humour, playfulness or subversion (Monument Valley in sheep poo- The Lakes in roast lamb!), the work discusses our relationship with landscape and with architecture , often together, our presence and mark, successful or not- reservoirs, farming, building shelter. Using model scale as a tool to create and frame bigger narratives, manipulating & developing the details within spaces. For example, intricate, delicate fictional scaffolding constructed with grass, occupied by painted figures that draw in the viewer whilst offering a strange, human presence and disorientating perspective.
