Exhibition in Bocs, Caernarfon... Coming soon!

I will be exhibiting at Bocs, Caernarfon, in June. Here is a sneak peak of what to expect...

This work has grown from studying the wool caught in fences – an image so common place in Wales it is embedded in the landscape. Every fence you pass will have organic matter lodged within a knot of man-made wire. If you look closely at these threads you will see a miniature installation in each bundle.

My sculptures enlarge the tiny arrangements within these parcels. Observing the structures, which are defined by light and shadow, these details form the basis for visceral experimentation. I work instinctively following linear patterns as the blueprint for defining a larger installation. The work is an expansion of the microcosm - drawing with lines and blowing-up encased knots to sculpt magnified installations.
