Reworking the narrative through material and process
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.
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
changing meaning, recreating a new story.
recreating, reworking the story,
layers of meaning
ambiguity, peeling away
the supposed truth.
