I am inspired by concrete structures within the built environment, whether inhabited or abandoned. I am drawn to dominant lines and the intricate fragility of light and materiality as they interact across and around the surfaces of these structures. Layering and reconfiguring of these visual elements allows me to reinterpret these spaces and develop new spatial compositions. Extracted shadow shapes become receptacles, able to contain an individual or collective memory.
Whilst the built environment provides me with interesting shapes and surfaces, my work is not directly about architecture. It is about the various spaces created and affected by changing light around structures and is concerned with materiality, memory and loss, some of which allude to experiences from a childhood spent in Western Australia. Research into concrete structures, particularly Brutalist, in the UK and the Netherlands inspire my current practice.
