I love to work physically to make things which communicate our shared physicality.

In these two sculptural pieces I was thinking about habit and work and play and overlapping these.

I wanted to make the hard surfaces appear soft and intimate, and to activate unconscious reactions in others beyond our everyday language and logic. 

Made during lockdown these exhibited pieces also reflect this feeling of being stuck, not being able to work, needing to support one another, needing something to hold onto.

I like to leave the forms I produce somewhat ambiguous and open to the imagination of the viewer, to invite participation in the most basic sense of sticking around to be with the work - when this becomes possible again!
