What does it all mean?
In this fast world, slow labour intrigues me. My current practice is based on obsessive repetitive processes that straddle the divide between meaningful ritual and mindless pattern-making.
I find emotional resonance in the small objects that are so commonplace that they become invisible to us. Using them in vast numbers makes them strikingly apparent again. Pins, string, jars and matches – my art has been described as ‘the museum of the everyday’.
In recent years my art has been moving out of the gallery system into the streets and onto the internet with daily year-long projects such as The Diary Project and 365 Jars. I am interested in connecting with people where they are and engaging with those who might not visit galleries.
My training in sculpture and a love of drawing are at the heart of everything I do but you will always find me dancing in the margins. I like to work on the edges of things: between sculpture, performance and drawing; between art and craft; between the internet and ‘the real world’. My art is always a quiet transgression.
