Following in a long tradition of art and the body, my interests lie with themes of life, death and illness.
I make highly formal sculptures using materials that are often medical, such as syringes, hypodermic needles, microscopic slides and plastic airline tubing. These materials bring the work into the context of medical intervention and of the hospital as place. They also help to convey feelings of the fragility and vulnerability of the human condition. Using these materials as a starting point in an exploratory way, the work develops organically, acting on natural instincts, and taking inspiration from both personal experience and research. As a result, each piece is autonomous.
Artists of influence include Eva Hesse, Helen Chadwick and Mona Hatoum.
