Stay Unlocked

This body of work, created during the successive lockdowns. Making in situ I notice small differences between what I think I know about my surroundings and what emerges after a period of contemplation.
In this series I work predominantly with printing and casting, often taken directly from the objects around me. I’m excited by the once-removed quality this creates, the way that very familiar things are made unfamiliar. Working with these prints and fragments, I try to assemble them in ways that make sense in relation to their visual logic.
I have sought out ‘home friendly’ methods and materials gathering traces of the objects in that space, studying the intimate relationship between the place and its occupants.
I’d like my work to inspire a reappraisal of everyday experience, to show that how you look at something is as important as what you are looking at.
