This year I have set myself a challenge, to transcribe abstract and distorted images and text into a book. This collection of fragments is the result of frantic documentation of a sequential dream over the past 2years.
I have the title already it will be know as “Second Star”, looking and reviewing the information I have so far it promises to be a distorted creative combustion of broken written words and images brimmed with personal energy.
The book will hopefully inspire new work of jewellery and objects so I best make a start on project SECOND STAR……
My work is about following each piece and being intuitively
open to an unspoken dialogue that spans a breath of choices and unknown exit
points. My interest in memory is the makings of the complexities of a souvenir.
The moments captured with an object that creates a personal language. For me
being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds
making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront
the real world, curated by movement of life that allows the work to be
witnessed in challenging surroundings. I see my work as an anthology of
objects, each being a unique incomplete tangible question that collects
personal provenance. What stimulates my work and research is the ongoing amassments
of stuff I collect and own. Obsessions happen without acknowledgement and my
inventory shows no boundaries to objects, just an attraction that I find it
hard to explain other than: we find each-other.
