CAPS, Year 2

My work explores themes of ageing, weathering, death and decay, and in particular the marks left by the passage of time and the process of decomposition and erosion.

I strongly feel that the process of making is as important as the outcome for me, and this informs the materials and methods that I use.

I study these themes mainly through ceramics, plaster, etchings and photography. However, I do not limit my range of materials, as I feel that it is necessary for me to mix layers and textures in diverse ways to achieve the aesthetic that I am looking for.

I incorporate a wide range of organic and inorganic materials in an effort to disrupt the outcomes and leave room for accidental and reactionary effects. I create layers of cracking, peeling and staining to convey the feeling of decay and disintegration
