Artist Creative Process
I work in mixed media: ceramics, drawing and Installation, in a pop art inspired style. I infuse everyday imagery with personal narratives that speak of universal concerns including: finding meaning in everyday objects and rituals, urbanisation, disconnect from nature, comfort and constraint in suburbia, consumerism, environmental concern, and modern social disconnection.
It is telling to me that I am drawn to the beauty of high voltage power poles, such unnatural and industrial forms, and does this attraction mirror our collective attraction and reliance upon fossil fuel generated energy?
Artwork Description
This work explores power poles as symbols of humanity’s reliance on fossil fuel-generated energy- brutal and raw set amongst the palms- a utilitarian device symbolic of our collective need to cease the love affair with fossil fuels! I like to think it draws on common thoughts and values amongst the local community. It’s connection is physical, geographical and ideological to this place, and the inherent need to switch to renewables to reduce the severity of global warming.
