Recent work, Wellspring forms an introduction to Pilgrimage to Imago, (upcoming Residency). Re-imagining the cycle of birth/death, a process of decay and renewal, insect forms bristle with life, layering complex patterns inside and out. Through a series of soft sculpture, paintings and assemblages I imagine these ideas as an exploration to my own psychology, reflecting my life from childhood to adulthood, always in a state of flux, always in a state of loss and becoming, working through the deep psychoanalytical complexities that underpin lived experience, directing a more poetic extension of the ‘self’ as subject.
