I am interested in the relationship between environment and the body and blurring the line between inside and outside disrupts how the spaces we inhabit impact us sensorially. This series of work explores touch, and the way both tactile and ephemeral stimuli evoke an embodied response. It highlights the dialogue between sight, smell, thought, emotion, and physical sensation, where an aspect of the work – like all experience – lives in the body.
Separate pieces link together like words completing a sentence. They speak of the space between delicate and durable, and absence and presence. By working in direct response to the landscapes I am in, I engage with materials for their narrative and sensorial qualities. Recontextualized surface textures can be read like stories, where mud, stone, seaweed, grass, paper and pine needles index points of contact.
