In this body of work the concept of growth is under investigation. The animate and inanimate object the fantastic and the everyday are bridged. Through the medium of sculpture and printmaking visual metaphors are simultaneously alive and ethereal. I am interested in tangibility of materials and processes which are subtly undermined by the poetic nature of the imagery. These works explore issues of preservation, the fragile nature of our physical bodies and our relationship to the natural world. Art is a kind of forecasting of the state of humanity. It can lift us up from apathy and enable us to navigate frontiers of hope.
