Current work focusses on the mark we make and our relationship with the world on an environmental and psychological level, using the intimate to reflect a global perspective. I am working with ceramic, resin, stone, latex, rubber, wire, fossilised tree stone and living plants. This work often mimics natural forms and systems, weather and time.
The red and black ceramic “fingerprint” work involves thousands of pieces of squeezed clay, each capturing a fingerprint, made to fit trees and pieces of fossilised stone. Site specific fingerprint work was installed on a tree in Lytham for the Counterp-art event – creating an infestation of human presence, beautiful and odd.
Many thanks to Yorkshire Stone Craft quarry at Friendly, Halifax, who kindly give me the fossilised tree pieces exposed during quarrying and salvaged.
