Expressive form: Sculpture
My work explores the depiction of key personal memories and impressions using layered and representational forms. I have been inspired by the work of French artist Anastassia Elias who creates miniature views of life situations from cut-out paper assemblages within toilet-roll tubes. In my work, the darkly weathered and rough exterior of the viewing tubes is suggestive of an anticipated, tightly constrained inner-city existence. This contrasts with the vibrant colour, depth and detail depicted by the tube interiors, which are evocative of sometimes humorous personal experiences – and enhanced by titles that reference cartoon art by Glen Baxter.
Influencing artists: Anastassia Elias, Andy Goldsworthy, Glen Baxter
