My practice specifically relates to the exploration of instinctual form in relation to unorthodox surface methodology. My intention is to be as spontaneous as possible, a hard task given the volatile nature of clay, heat and chemicals. I prefer my work to serve a purpose, even if that purpose is not based on a functionality that is obvious in the traditional sense. I like to think that my work is about something ‘other’ than itself, awkward balance and pictorial narrative always present, always linked, the tangible object on the shelf or canvas on the wall representing the sometimes intangible whole.
Nowadays, as always, I find that to be true to myself is paramount in my quest to find my own ‘perfect’ aesthetic, whilst questioning the notion of the mainstream view of ‘imperfect’, my motive remaining constant regardless of material, method and outcome.
