About Me.

 

My current practice focuses on sculpture. I am captivated by natural forms to an almost spiritual extent. It is this that motivates my creativity to capture the essence of the materials and the resonant places where they were found.

The found objects include driftwood, glass and stone that are then interpreted, worked and represented through combinations and juxtapositions in materials including resin, concrete and cement. My practice aims to highlight the beauty found in unusually overlooked natural objects and illuminate their presence in the outside world by transforming and displaying their isolated presence inside. The found objects are transformed into sculptural objects where the viewer is compelled to focus upon the pure form and textures.

My interventions reifies a stone, a brick or driftwood and imbues it with my own sense of wonder. I am interested in revealing an unexpected beauty and properties in a previously unseen way.
