My work often resides between specific places and sites of the past. Filtered through memory, missing, remembering and frequenting. I’m interested in meeting points, places of congregation, casually though; the meeting point before the journey or the destination. Lowkey important landmarks. To approach the fabric of location, physical and phycological, that contextualises a life. The work creates abstractions ripe for false memories. Driven by time standing still in waiting room chairs. Through a forced slowing down, a reframing through time. Sculptures sitting heavy, waiting impatiently for your arrival.
