About Artist

My practice falls within multiple remits and disciplines, straddling sculpture, printmaking, animation, drawing, painting and architecture. I use stacks of thin material, such as paper, card, or film, and hand-cut each sheet individually, accumulating small variations, so that the cuboid of the stack of paper is transformed into a unique, curved, three-dimensional shape. Much of my work uses the grid to explore the role of the hand of the artist in production of art. For me, the need for a precise structure is not an end in itself, but a way of containing and inviting chance, just beyond the edge of human ability. My work explores notions of making that are not couched in nostalgia, but are part of a larger resurgent discussion about craftsmanship and the role of the artist in the production of work. I grow my sculptural pieces through a slow and laborious process of layering of grids drawn on thin materials, creating a spatial distortion of flat geometry. The resulting objects are both animate and static and give in solid form a glimpse into the wholeness of time.
