Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
The theme behind my work is to create a “city in the sky”. My inspiration initially came from a plastic bag flying in the air which I saw when I looked up into the sky .This evoked a good feeling and I began to consider the concept and question of flying; why should jewellery not fly? My work evolved from this to become sculptural objects.
I create objects from bamboo and Chinese rice paper, exploring form, shape and structure. The visual use of lines in the pieces, in the installation and images of my work build together an alternative city skyline.
I hope people can find a feeling of freedom and escapism in my work. I express this idea by taking photographic views of the city and making shorts film to tell a story about my flying pieces.
