Clay possesses the tender yet powerful ability to record marks, as it reflects touch, surface and impression instinctively. It is alive as earth, and provides a conduit between human narrative thinking and experience with visually represented communication. Recurring themes in my work include discovery through the consideration of how the natural environment and built world shape and define how we navigate life. Conceptually I swing from considering how heartbreak is felt through the impending and crushing imposition of humans on the planet, or the new epoch we live in, the Anthropocene, to the interior psyche/landscape of humanity and how we push through personal struggle, love and loss. The tug between survival and joy and progress I suppose.
