Reworking the narrative through material and process

Cynotype image from old family photograph and hand drawn elements

South African-born North Essex-based artist;


fabric, paper, bronze

stitch, direct casting

threads, wire, screws and metal,

rusting away, sanding down, 

the smell of beeswax and turps.


absence/ presence 

recapture, retelling, 

process obsessed, taking my time

exploring ideas/research through making

the feel of fabric and yarn between fingers, 

the needle marking the surface, unpicking, redoing

(re)found text

changing meaning, recreating a new story.


recreating, reworking the story, 

layers of meaning

ambiguity, peeling away

the supposed truth.
