My recent practice engages with the exploration of material •
artefacts which serve to record complex cultural and familial histories. Concepts of ethnography, time and memory serve as starting points - significant imagery, objects and heirlooms are
then collected and analysed in an attempt to decipher distant narratives. While holding space for reflection and meditation, the
act of drawing allows for the translation and synthesis of one object into another, which becomes embedded with my physical presence. Through the making and presentation processes curiosity is evoked about the histories we know and more importantly those we don’t
- and the ways in which this shapes our understanding of selfhood, lineage and culture. I work across drawing, painting, ceramics and silversmithing media.
