Collection of Discovered Artefacts 2012. Mixed Media. Varying Dimensions
My work has always revolved around the experimentation of natural formations and materials, in which I have explored through ideas surrounding decomposition and preservation, concealment and the unknown. This has led me to themes relating to that of archaeology - suggestive of something that I may have discovered. There is an importance of the museum display, where the fragility of my work that is emphasised in being in such a pristine environment. An ongoing thread in my work is its unpredictability and instability. The aesthetic of the natural is contradicted in use of such man-made materials. The irony that I am trying to preserve something that itself may be lost due to its own industrial construction.
