My practice inhabits the transect between botany, zoology and anthropology, often referencing ‘seeds’ as a unifying concept. For me, a seed is both a symbolic and potential object with the capacity to become anything. My work explores the human desire to categorise and then challenges the boundaries of these taxonomies. I am interested in the way classification shapes our worldview, giving binary interpretations that favour parts of society over others.
I work mainly in metal, which allows for a study of contrast, texture, weight, flow and foundation, and a process that juxtaposes cold engineered certainty and fiery visceral chance. The temporal relationship between my work and its environment is also a key factor in my practice, embodying a continuum rather than a captured moment in time.
