My practice involves entering urban and rural spaces and responding to certain markings of spray paint, bits of metal and half-built structures. These lines, markings and materials often indicate borders and boundaries and reveal traces of industrialization and urbanization. In exploring the details of a certain environment, mostly on foot, I respond to the way in which these lines read as ‘drawings’ on the landscape, revealing the way space is divided and connected.
Through the process of collecting materials I became aware of the spaces I move through, which are often passed without much attention . I am interested in looking at barriers, cement boundaries, and the way we move within these spaces, leaving traces behind. This body of work begins to question our relationship to cities, industrial parks, garbage dumps, waste areas. I explore the entropy of a space, as I find myself speculating on my own surroundings. My work engages with space in a responsive way, in order to understand my own reaction to and against such a space.
Through this body of work I rediscover the personal connection between myself and my environment. Within my practice I realise the impact of daily life and experiences on my creative process, as I attempt to integrate myself comfortably, and playfully, into a world full of industry, buildings and complexities.
