My goal is to let the theme from a painting move across the floor, into sculpture and visa versa.Recent art deals with climate change and the vulnerability of the human condition. In The Glitch, I am examining how nature “looks beautiful”, but, in reality, is “glitching” or becoming more extreme. . . . . Art is harnessed to show the effect of climate change. In 70,000, my marks are remembering the 70,000 people who died in the 2003 heatwave (Lancet, 2009).The objective is to create drama in each piece of art – with impact, power and strength. The aim is that the art does not sit easily on the wall or floor, but is provocative. . . . Place, poetry and writing influence. Texture, layering, and energetic marks are important elements of the process. Current work is a combination of sculpture, drawing, painting, collage, video and poetry. Mediums are cardboard, paint, charcoal and found materials.
