My practice is process-driven and is concerned with an intuitive method of working using found and repurposed materials. Working predominantly with discarded wood, I seek to unveil the innate qualities that might be found imbedded within such material. Working with the intent for acts of transformation, metamorphosis, and revelation, I aim to create meaningful objects with a strong spatial presence that may affect and interact with its audience.
With Equilibrium, gravity, balance and tension play a vital role in the conceptual premise of this work. This is a personal work of revelation. Of the profound moment where inner stillness is attained, the duality of the mind is silenced and insights are gained. The circular form finds a perfect balance at the very end of the thin length of timber. It won’t fall in either direction but maintains this perfect balance and equilibrium.
