this is a collaborative group project on my MA. the ideas is collecting forms of conversations using the theme of construct.
my group decided to create an online live project using Twitter and Facebook. asking participants to change and contribute by manipulating an existing image (creative pass the parcel). the first image was a quails egg shell and my ink blot the 2nd...
taking this formula to change something I took existing brooches and added to them with the idea of donating them to a charity shop; thus the main conversation is the valuation... will they even make it on the shop shelves? ...
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.
