My work explores ideas and opportunities presented by the relationship between Art and Science. Developing studies of my own interpretation of the human cells, as the basis for an exploration to reveal normally hidden truths, making unseen entities visible and turning the inside-out.
The theme of revealing what is normally hidden is interesting to me, so there is a sense in the work of exposing the inner body's hidden truths and beauty.
Additionally the theme of how beauty can appear in imperfection is explored in my ceramic production of cells. Cracks and faults which appear in the firing process are exploited and transformed to accentuate each individual cell's uniqueness and aura. Thus, the inherent and fascinating contrast in cells between repetition and individuality is examined in my work -- while the cells are broadly similar, their differences are deliberately highlighted.
The medium of ceramic clay allows me to create and express the organic forms. I use porcelain paper clay; dipping combustible into porcelain slip, hand modeling, cutting and then constructing. The forms are built with both fired and non-fired clay elements, highlighting repetition and individuality.
