My art practice is about dismantling and mantling – present in each piece. I am interested in how to place artwork within a space, to create an experience unique to that venue, that moment in time. Unearthed and newly made forms help me find a place to stand. My research draws upon embodied cognition and circus arts – the ways our body knows. Central to this inquiry is to discover the ways in which art-making can elicit a hidden voice and in so doing equip us for our Third Third of life; our 60 years to close of play. Metal is my preferred medium applying image to geometric shapes. Tears finding form is my current focus.
