I am a full time, vegan artist working from my home studio in Christchurch. I am a sculptor of stone and a painter hoping for my work to connect emotionally with the viewer.
My work is about bringing together memories and incidental thoughts from my past, patterns and connections related to my emotions. The idea of creating work to trigger memories fascinates me.
We’re living in an age where we have endless information at our finger tips.
We have constant news and images if we want it. Does technology help us remember information or will our minds become overwhelmed and unable to have any independent thoughts of our own? If some memories make us feel uncomfortable, are we able to make a conscious effort to forget? If not, should we be trying to put things right?
I can’t forget how things make me feel. I try to supress the dark side of humanity which affects me deeply. I struggle to understand why our species allows the destruction of the planet and the fine balance of nature which sustains us.
We have choices, we are alive in this moment and I want to convey the joy of living in a time where we have the intelligence and potential to do so much good for the benefit of us all.
