I’m unveiling some very new pieces this weekend as part of South East Open Studios
As part of the displaying process I’ve been having to think about names and stories. These works are now called as follows
Top L-R; Interlock, Flange, Weight | lift
Bottom L-R; Opening | closed, Catch
As with all my recent work they are place based, still working from my time at Dungeness for the moment although I suspect this series will go on to explore other areas.
My original photographs and drawings and memories are abstracted through a process of workings on paper; cut outs, collage, layering, and tape drawings etc.
At root, the works are inspired by my fascination with angles, proportions and chance compositions, particularly arising from utilitarian architecture such as industrial and military structures and are intended to evoke certain feelings and relationships recalled from the embodied experience of the site. This is what I am aiming to draw out in the names.
All I need now is a name for the series - perhaps Dynamics…
