theory

Craft processes such as weaving and sewing explore a self-reflexive subject, expanding an understanding of experience, drawing and tactility, through form and content.

The materials chosen, such as fabric and graphite, confront mathematical beauty where geometric enquiry rests between conceptualism and a discourse around two and three dimensional space.

Paper, ribbon or fabric are able to endow illusionary graphics, akin to brutalist architecture or science fiction. The implication of the human within cosmic is also traversed in the reincarnation of familiar objects such as headboards or stools, where the aggregation of geometric form encompasses their surface and being.

Whilst the works aim to hold a quiet, glaring energy, they embrace a celestial contradiction by means of the drawing and line’s ability to contain essences of perception
