Snare is from a larger body of work called Shimmer Suite. Materiality plays a significant role in the conceptual underpinnings of my artwork.
In my works I have eschewed traditionally weighty materials such as steel or bronze in favour of materials that are either industrial or those found in the home.
In Shimmer Suite I have used a common domestic object used to scrub pots to create art. My collective practice explores an interest in the transformation of ordinary objects into something poetic and metaphoric.
