IMG_1831My Artist Statement outlines my impetus for making as an artist teacher:

My work is a direct response to site specific spaces. Through photographic close ups, frottages and photopolymer etchings of physical fabrics I am searching for incidental signs of human activity. Who made these marks? When? Why? I am playing detective – speculating on supposed stories and hidden histories. The meaning and metamorphosis of material fascinates me.

This fascination is played out in the blog’s potential as a shapeshifter. Hovering between different states, planes and experiences it has the power to transform thought. I wish to explore signifiers of time and change in liminal locations¬†‘to make the familiar strange and the strange familiar’.
