AND THEY’LL COME HOME
This body of work is situated within the local landscape of a vicarage, it’s surrounding gardens, streets and fields. The exhibits are an embodiment of this place and form a poetic response to its history, grass verges, trees and adjoining meadows.
I work intuitively, gathering and sorting materials, and allow forms to emerge through simple acts of making; my processes are deliberately slow and have repetitive rhythms that lead to a multiplicity of outcomes. The studio, for me, is the space where research and creative activities come together across the medium of paint, drawing, handling material and making objects.
The intention for this exhibition is to give the viewer a sense of material presence with objects forming a correspondence within groups and across the gallery space. Presented in 5 groups, each form an intimate narrative where nature and culture come together.
