My work represents unknown forms of life and processes of growth. My work is autobiographic, with a reminiscence of bodies and organs. I explore facets of kinship, where the balance of power is brought to light: both the vulnerability and power from one creature to another. My work arises by playing with contradictions, such as attraction and repulsion. Bright, contrasting fluorescent colours layered in materials allow me to investigate that duality. Where these colours attract the eye, the organic shapes and the swirling tactile networks of lines invite in-depth observation. Within their alien ambiance, the works are containers of something that has left or something that is yet to come - or nothing at all.
