Contemporary artist working between printmaking and sculpture. MA Fine Art graduate from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London (Merit; 2017-19). BA (Hons) Art & Design graduate from the University of Leeds (First; 2013-17).

By staging conditions in which the interplay between gravity, balance, weight, physicality, hapticity, phenomenology and colour is infinitely fluctuating and dynamic, my work relishes the material unpredictability of process-led sculpture and its anthropomorphic relationship to the viewer.

My practice is characterised by an underlying proclivity to transform soft or malleable substrates into encrusted, fixed or finite masses. Typically, this involves combining no more than two materials that symbiotically perform each other in continuum. Polarities between security and precariousness, fixity and changeability, tension and slack, contemplation and spontaneity, and action and aftermath comprise conceptual interests which have emanated from my recent theatrical ‘processions’ of self-supporting sculptures.

The broad, non-indexical language of contrastingly fluid and frozen forms that I have developed is also driven by my fascination with how each viewer’s corporeal, perceptual, tactile and synaesthetic capacities inform their experience of my work, simultaneously activating my sculptures’ materiality as a subjective event of encountering, entering and becoming.
