Engaging with temporalities of time, memory and landscape I explore notions of entangled pasts, present and futures through immersive sensory experiences. Drawings, paintings, sculpture, moving Image and writing reflect my perceptions of these evolving, entwined relationships.
Using the immediacy of my mobile phone I capture conscious and unconscious interactions with place and time. Episodes of sensory experience I return to later in the studio. Often blending and combining to create short layered moments of experience and connection encountered. Observations which trigger thoughts and ideas for further studio exploration.
Working with paper, frottage and eyes closed drawing I record sensory dialogues of touch, time and memory of place. Autographic black marks and sculpted paper outcomes exist as unique documents of experience. Explorations which engage the unique sensitivity of drawing and serve as a catalyst to consider what it means to connect with the multi-temporalities of time, landscape and memory.
Thoughts and ideas which I explore and share through sculptural assemblage, painting and drawing. Working across mediums to investigate the potential to develop and enhance the conceptural aesthetics and materiality of different processes.
“Affect arises in the midst of in-between-ness; in the capacities to act and be acted upon…Affect…is
the name we give to the visceral forces beneath, alongside, or generally other than conscious
knowing, vital forces insisting beyond emotion – that can serve to drive us toward movement,
thought and extension.” (Greg and Seigworth, 2010).
