Meet the Artists

The medium of film is substantial to my art practice. My artwork is time based, therefore film allows the notion of time to unfold visually. I am interested in repetition and continue to explore ideas around this theme.

My work is about representing captivity within sculpture. The methods of using sculpture to influence the idea are by making the sculptures interactive and representational.

To make the sculptures representational they are made to a certain scale that enhance the viewers experience of the work.

The sculptures become active with two of them being able to be walked through, which gives the idea that once the viewer enters them, it creates an idea that the viewer becomes captive within them, which also makes the viewer the subject matter within the work itself.

I create my artwork based on personal experiences and my interests. By personal experience I mean things that have affected me or ideas I want to explore. A key theme throughout my work is identity. I work using a variety of materials depending on the subject. For example, in my previous work I looked at grief and I used paper cuts as my material. Paper is very delicate as are the feelings that grief causes, therefore the material links with the subject in my work. 

In my current work, I am looking at family history and storytelling, I have used old books and printmaking as printmaking is an old fashioned technique and the old books add age to the work. I also feel that although it may not come across in my work, I am influenced a lot by powerful female artists such as Frida Kahlo, Tracey Emin, Sarah Lucas, Cindy Sherman and Orlan. I like my work to look attractive and feminine as well even if the subject is not.

Another idea throughout my work is making work look attractive and then you look closely and you see things that you wouldn’t expect. I am working on another project at the moment in which I am looking at the effect of women in the media. I feel that women can feel pressured by magazines and I wanted to show this in some artwork. I hope to use collage for this.

I have worked using sculpture, installation, printmaking, painting and various other materials. I would therefore call myself a mixed media artist. I create art work that I want the viewer to connect with it and when this happens I feel that I have been successful.

Work in the “Duration Show” includes various mono prints from found photographs of my ancestors. I wanted to explore the idea of family in society as I feel that nowadays you don’t just have the nuclear family but many other types of families in society. I wanted to tell my families story through images and then let the viewer decided on making their own families using mine.
