Statement of Interest

I am interested in material and source, and meaning rooted in the connections between them. I investigate how materials collect their identity, beginning with geographic origins, through cultural connections and histories, ending with the objects they become. By traveling to physically gather material and information myself I create a personal connection to the source and attempt to render that bond. I account for the journey from source to viewer, acting as a liaison, intent on bringing the two worlds closer to one another. As a result of thorough research I become expert and the work becomes a vessel for discovery, communication and understanding. Through this act I hope to discover how my role as a connector of material and histories affects the form of the object and the formulation of the role of the viewer. The work’s ultimate goal is to inspire the viewer to consider a complex network of historical, economic, and geopolitical forces that bring an object into existence. Thus I intentionally collapse the notion that art or any designed object can emerge from an insular creative bubble, untouched by history, culture and economy. The specific use of material is dictated by my own inability to express what the material can express with authority. As a maker, I cannot create what the material holds within it, thus I borrow the power of material to communicate. In turn, as a maker I release a form of the materials own agency that it cannot release itself. This is a cooperative act.

Thanks! I think this is so because I want men to wear more jewelry, so in the wood series I wanted a male model.

I took my own images, and a lot of us did too, but a lot were taken by Chuchart, he's very good with a camera and some lights!

The pencil/pen drawn images in my pieces are below the top surface, they can be seen through the resin and are protected. Mostly I have hand drawn with an engraving tool for the pendant motor (dentist drill?), some times filling the engraved line with colour, then it looks inlaid or enameled.

The imagery is of elements of my practice, the processes I use to generate work, such as hand drawing and embroidery.

Does that make sense?

Located in the south, it is the original home to the dutch electronics giant Phillips which opened its manufacturing in Eindhoven in 1891 causing an industrial boom. More recently it has become the capital of Dutchie (industrial) design. This has mostly to do with the success of the Design Academy which has attracted professionals from the field including…
