William Blake once said, “The true method of knowledge is experiment.” I believe that my own work encompasses this. I try to be free within my artwork to always explore and never be set and grounded in my ways. I often use re-occurring themes such as nostalgia, communication, recycling, family, emotion and reflection I frequently reference the past, mainly from 1950’s to present day. I get excited by looking into history, particularly at different trends/patterns and how this can be translated into the modern day.
I use many methods and materials to make my art; my work ethic is to approach each series/individual piece of work with the intention to use the best materials available to me to convey my thoughts and ideas. I do however find myself returning to and developing some of my favourite processes and styles of work, which include; collage, installation, environmental art, printmaking, textile and 3D work.
These works echo the theme of reflection as they physically show my partner and myself, but more than that, they examine the role of the female in a partnership and highlight emotions and occurrences within this. The work aims to link the past with the current as well as incorporating humour, emotion and nostalgia.
