WILLOW AND STONE
I am a momentary video artist whose work explores the day to day, the overlooked and the seemingly insignificant. My personal writing frequently acts as a point of departure, where poignant and mundane moments inform my reflections on living in Cornwall compared to where I am from in the North exploring the idea of what it is to ‘feel at home.’ My inspirations vary from experimental 70s music such as Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle, to writers such as Patti Smith and Virgina Woolf as well as TV programs like Tales of the Unexpected.
Personally I find all occurrences in my surroundings to have the potential to reveal something worth stopping for. Whether it be the boiler breaking, a conversation around the dinner table to growing my own courgettes.
At times my work is bleak, melancholic and silent; however more recently I find it has stumbled into colour through my rug making and video work, as I look closely at the home environment and collaborating with others.
