'Thoughts of Grief' Mixed media on paper 1.5Mx1.5M

Transformation is at the heart of my practice. In my current work, I look at the written word and records of universal themes; time, emotion and memory. I break these words down into a visual language that becomes both impossible to read and but universally understandable. It is the breakdown of recognisable linguistics that allows the viewer rely on emotions. Much of this work has been created with the phrase "where words fail" in mind, recording emotions in which words seem unfitting and incapable of portraying their intensity.
My work encompasses drawings, sculptures, sound work and more, all retaining the presence of the human hand and the need to experiment in it's creation, while letters, diaries, internal monologue etc become embedded into large expansive fields of colour and mark making.
